Hey all!
After 5 years out of the hobby I finally have a space to set up and get back into things.

While setting up I noticed my Mark 5 is starting to make that characteristic "click, click, click" when running, indictive of the brushes needing to be changed again and instead of replacing them again I'd like to see at saving myself the trouble in the future.

Has anyone heard of replacing the motor in a Mark 5 with a brushless design or could point me towards a motor that would work as a drop-in replacement?

Thanks
