*Due to the high RPM of Scorpion Motors, and the fact that we have no control of the user’s installation and setup, the bearings are not covered by the 2-year warranty, nor is any subsequent damage caused to the motor by a bearing failure. Bearing are considered to be a normal wear item, and as such, need to be maintained and changed periodically. For maximum life usage, we recommend users make sufficient gap between pinion and main gear during installation to avoid binding, and put a small drop of lubrication oil on each bearing for every 5-6 flights. It is the responsibility of the pilot to ensure that the bearings are maintained properly.
