Hey Guys

I have made a short, (or maybe not so short......lol) video tutorial on how to maintain your AEG motors.  I know that there have been some issues lately about some of the motors not performing well or not performing at all.  This should resolve some issues that you are having.  One thing to add is that after performing this procedure my SR10 that used to shoot around 23rps is now shooting around 25.5rps.  So definitely an improvement in performance.
Watch the video and let me know what you think.

Very informative video.  I wonder if you are or ever were an RC enthusiast?  Do you think they will ever go brushless?

Nice video Niko!  You'd never know it was your first.

Wondering if this should be pinned or moved to DIY so it is easy to find and reference.

Awesome video! And only your first?  Man, most people can't make informative videos like that even if it's their 100th!  Really helpful, thanks.

Great Video

There are comm cleaning sticks. The shunt wire from the brush should be soldered on or near the brush hood. Dont bend the hood file the brush.
The brushes are not worn, there seated, one end is longer then the other. Even though these motor have 0 timing.
The brushes should be installed in the hood it came out of. Or you can loose RPMs & they could crack. There seated for that hood.

Motor cleaning spray

Motor bearing oil

And hard to find com cleaning sticks. Fiberglass & splinters are painful
http://www.ebay.com/...=item460eb13523

Since most RC motors are brushless, its hard to find parts for brushed AEG motors.

Soldering is always best but even I am guilty of not doing it just out of pure laziness. :)

My son was having problems changing out battery's He's "Battery Challenged"
I also have a cat that runs full speed, then jumps into a solid wall, *Wormhole*  Its a imperfect world.

I was amazed how many crap connectors were used & cheap wire.
After hardwiring everything including a 25A auto fuse & that burst "Mosfet" thingy with 665 strand high current wire (about 16awg)

I did choose Deans, thought is was the best choice for the tight fit.

Well, the gun works fine, my son gets a days play with one Battery, a stronger motor & spring, seeing how its a 2/3 cell unmatched pack, It works fine for the little guys.
Not for the advanced players as you all know. Im just stating minor fixes work well, and are needed. saved me from going lipo.
Im getting it:)

Feel free to post a motor upgrade tutorial.  I would love to see it as I am sure other would.  Apart from Niko's maintenance thread it's a subject that hasn't really been addressed.  You might even get it pinned!
