Thanks this is great info. IMO they are using unskilled labor and automation to wind most drone motors. What you say here makes a good case for on-shoring the production of motors we are putting in life or death situations. I'm totally willing to buy a North American made product that has an FAA approval etc.not to mention how much more copper you can get in it if you carefully wind it yourself.
Having good balance and orientation doesn't help a lot. The motion in the air, along with turbulence from all those bumps you can't see, can make it difficult for the newbie. And in IFR flying, trusting your balance and orientation will kill you quick. The inner ear is useless when the visibilty is zero. It lies to you. One HAS to trust the instruments and ignore everything else. Of course, there won't be any IFR in a Lazair anywayI am looking at my RC experience more as experience with electric motor systems. But all my flying has been remote and so my body is not at all ready for g forces, stalls etc. I am pretty agile on my skateboard, even in a ramp/vert situation, so I know I have good balance and orientation, but will need several flights (10-20 hours) with an instructor doing stalls and many landings before I can even contemplate going solo. I'm in Canada and there is much training in permitting for ultralight required.
