The 500L has been really good to me, just passed 100 flights on it today and its still going strong I fly in idle up all the time and it comes down hot but still goes like a champ. Ive never rebuilt it or oiled it FWIW.

Using a 500l also for well over 100 flights plenty of power and no issues besides running hot. Any thoghts on wether this motor needs to be oiled , i never have but wouldnt mind doing it if its going to increase its life or make it run smoother.

Default Align 500MX or Scorpion 3026 For My New 500

Just bought an Align 500PRO DFC and wondering if I should use my scorpion 3026 instead of the stock Align 500BX motor. Looks like the Align @ 1600w and 75 amps continuous vs Scropion's1470 watts and 70 amps continuous would be a stronger motor. What do you guys think? I'm fairly new and for some reason thought Scorpion was a better motor, don't know .
P.S. loved how the Align kit went together. First real kit, did two and a half HK (2 450's and one 500) Fit and finish is is perfect.

No doubt the Scorpion is the better motor , but I have been using a 500 mx for the past three hundred flights or so on my 500 without any issues. Gives me plenty of power. I wouldn't replace it just to replace it I would wait till the 500 MX fails.
