Default tail rotor adapter installation

Another addition: when installing the tail rotor adapter onto the motor shaft, DO NOT install it all the way down on the shaft. Space it out a hair, so once it's tightened to the shaft you can grab the motor shell and pull it in/out ~1mm.

Having it seated all the way down the shaft causes it to bind up when it gets hot, which will bring the tail to a screeching halt mid flight, causing it to piro out of control

Description of what happened, what I tested, and what I concluded:
