Default Xnova 4525-530 Maintenance vs Scorpion?

I'm trying to decide between 2 motors Xnova Lightning 4525-530 or Scorpion 4525-520. I was on Helidirects website and for the Scorpion motor they said to put a drop of oil on each bearing every 5 to 6 flights. Does Xnova need for you to do the same thing? Also what is the difference between the 2 motors? Is it worth paying the extra money for the Xnova compared to the Scorpion?

neither motor needs oiling.. ive never oiled any scorpion motor ive owned. xnova will run cooler but the scorp is just fine too..any motor can run really hot if not geared correctly.
save a couple bucks and buy used..
