mSR x battery won't last .... seems to be a motor issue
I took apart my mSR x, I needed to change swashplate.
Since I reassemble it, it is eating the battery like crazy, after 1:30 min to max 2:30min there is not enough juice left to get it to climb!
I tried with four E-flite 150mah/25C, all bought at different times. Just in case, I bought a brand new E-flite, did the same. I also tried with Turnigy Nano 160mah/25C (5 of them).
They all do the same, 2:30 min of flight time max. I used to do 5 min.
I have no clue of what can cause this.
P.S. Please do not pollute the thread if you have no clue. Thanks

Blade mSR X motor defect
Hi,I have put the mSR X on the side for a while and started to fly a mSR and a nCP x to realize that the same batteries will easily do 6+ minutes in a mSR and 5 min in the nCP x.
I wrote to Horizon Hobby (HH), and they tell me:
"These are brushed motors. They will need replacing. As the brushed motor is used the internal bushes will wear down. When this happens it will get a loss of rpm, motor might get hot and shut down. This is normal it is not a defect in the motors."Well, NO IT IS NOT NORMAL, the mSR X was less than a month old when it started and I probably flew a total around 25 flights of 4 min.
I looked around, and quickly found that there are many complaints similar of defective motors after less than 2 hours of flight.
Will wait to see what HH will answer back.
