What does run dry mean?


I'm assembling a Kyosho F-16 and I've seen several comments about running the motor dry prior to assembly. What exactly does that mean? Thanks Don

i believe they are refering to how to break the motor in. hook it up to two d cells and run it for 10 min or so to seat the brushes.....gregg

I have read that when breaking in a motor without using water that 2 D batteries should be used until they run out of juice (several hours).
