    I have been flying my FC40 for 3 months and am amazed with it. I'm worried about one thing.
    I noticed something about the resistance felt in the motors since the unboxing; one out of the four motors lacks the jerky feel of the permanent magnets. Very noticeably stiffer. It may have the same magnetic strength, but I'm thinking a bearing or something may be too tight?
    So far I had no issues, the particular motor feels the same or a bit looser, all get warm evenly. Just thinking, will this thing cease one day in flight, or what?? - any input is appreciated.....
