Hi Everyone.
We are currently filling out a 3rd party insurace form for our MKs and one of the questions is what is the overall/ultimate life on the engine? Obviously this form is designed for a more traditional style of UAV, but does anyone have a idea on the life of a MK motor? I was looking at the t-motors site and it was suggesting changing the bearings after 60 hours....

I don't think thats an exact science, it depends on how clean your flying environment is and how well they are been taken care of . If you fly a lot in dusty places for instance, the bearings will diminish faster.
I would send MK an email asking them directly, then you have it in written to attach to the insurance form.

With almost regular oiling of the both bearings I have been flying my OctoXL since 2011 with 3638 motors.
But for last several months I was not flying much.

This may be an statement not being an exact reply to the post due to the time delay.
