    Motor Recommendations - blade 400

    Hello all,
    I'm pretty new to the workd of electrics.
    I have a Blade 400 that I fly regularly (about 1hour to 2 hours daily) and the E-Flite motors are failing me.
    I have had the Heli for 2 months now, and have been through 2 motors, both failed the bearings.

    In short, I am not satisfied with the E-Flite motors. Being I have no knowledge of electric power systems,
    I need help selecting a good 400 class motor to put in my heli.

    I have heard that the Scorpion motors are good, and have replaceable bearings and parts.
    However, I do not know which model to buy, they have so many!

    Anyone have recommendations for a quality motor that will fit in my Blade 400?

    There are a lot of good motors.
    Some swear by them, but it seems to me at the field the guys always screwing around with a motor/ESC problem more often than not are working on one of the "I got it for less than half of the cost of a fill in the blank with a name brand".
    From my aircraft only days to now though I have never, ever had one of the admittedly expensive Hacker motors I was less than completely satisfied with, and never was one of them less than a smooth running powerhouse.

    When I need a motor for my Mini-Titan that's what'll be going in it. Doug

    Thanks Doug,
    Actually at 54.99 it's the same price of the E-Flite motor that keeps failing.
    So if it lasts me more than 1 month, it would be worth it, to me, to purchase the
    Hacker motor, and pay shipping, rather then buy another cheap quality (I suspect Chinese) motor
    from E-Flite.
