Default Msr-x tail motor alternative

Hi all, after flying my msr-x into a wall (again), the tail motor stopped working because the end cap came off.

I went online looking for a replacement, and I did not really want to pay $10 for a replacement tail (I bought the whole heli second hand for $25...), so I looked for alternatives, and found out that the tinywhoop motors are a direct swap (with a bit of soldering)>

This is the motor I bought, it costs $1,50 and works flawlessly.

I could not be happier.

I am glad you you found an alternative.

I have been wondering if those would work. Especially when looking at replacements for the main motor. In the event that it should fail.

Hopefully the use of shrink tubing over the end-cap provides you some shock absorption in the event of another crash.

Definitely hope so! I ordered 10 just in case...

I also ordered some main motors to experiment when the original one will fail : https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/40000...49976c37DXc5M8
