    Thought they were joking when they said to clean them by running them underwater.

    Years ago we raced rc cars with brushed motors and would always run them underwater to clean and reseat brushes then oil. Only issues with brushless motors would be to properly dry and reoil bearings carefully. With rc heli bearings once you oil them you have to repeat regularly as it washes out the factory grease.
