Thrust bearing needed on flipsky direct drive?

Hi, are there people here using the flipsky 65161 motor without a thrust bearing? I ordered one for a simple build but I’m not sure if I can keep it simple by not using this bearing. I saw some people using it between the motor and prop but maybe this can be done in the motor too? I would like to hear some sugestions.

Is there anyone with some toughts about this?

Some have used a thrust bearing and some haven’t. There are no real stats yet as to whether its really needed or not.

Oke, I think I will try without. I see that a lot of ball bearings rate 1/3 - 1/2 radial load to axial load. I will give it a try
