Default Anyone knows if Flyzone micro motors are best PKZ cheap motors?

Hi
I'm have a little of frustration about the short life and problems with the PKZ micro motors, my p51 don't start itself and loss a lot of power and the j3 don't run anymore.
I purchased spares and waiting for it.
I'm wondering if the Flyzone motors can be a little best.
Seems similar, and a lot more cheaply and easy to find.
Anyone with Flyzone can tell his experience with them.

Regards!

Javier, you have had bad luck! My PZ micro motors have lasted long lives because I "rest" them between flights--no immediate flights with new, charged batteries one after the other and, because I live on a saltwater bay, I MUST use a rust/oxidation inhibitor on all metal surfaces so I put a drop or two of LPS-2 (a light viscosity rust inhibitor/lubricant) on every motor shaft, and this, I hope, reduces the stress of the motor and puts a light film of the oil on the inside brushes that protects them. I believe as a result I have the added benefit of longer motor life.
NOTE: ParkZone, E-Flite, feel free to contradict my observation and inform us of any conflicts in using this or any other protective/lubricant product, as your literature makes no mentionings of such--except for a brief mentioning in the Spektrum DX6i transmitter manual (and others, I assume) which states, "....do not lubricate servos." Unfortunately I do not live in a salt-free vacuum.

I ever take rest of 5 min aprox between batteries, but my cub and p51 motor toasted
I purchased some spare motors to try but that motors seems very cheap and low quality.
I hope the spare last a little more or don't less power quickly.
The planes are great but I very disappointed with the motors.
I prefer think spend money in motors like nitro on my offroaders.

Regards!
