    I have an old Draganfly X-6 that burned a motor. Actually i think it burned its voltage regulator.
    Can anyone point me in the direction to get it repaired? Does anyone maybe have a spare motor I could buy? Thanks in advance

    wow that heli is old as hell 10yrs or something?? You might be better trying source one from dragonfly or just buy a new one that similar spec to the x6 one. repairing motors is not worth the effort you could try though

    Good news, the company has these motors available, so no trouble there. It does ask some interesting manufacturing questions though as the world moves toward less globalization, and hopefully (due to the economics of western labor) less throwaway hardware, how we are going to deal with end of life issues. If a circuit board can be made, I would assume it can be repaired. Not everything is worth repairing, but some stuff is, and I think I see a small niche industry there. For now though I'm just going to R&R the whole unit.
