Default Stripped in flight, new one for me.

Hey guys, popped it up in a test hover for some gyro adjustments. Brought it back up and and it just settled down on its own. Quick inspection showed this:


I dont know if this is a symptom of too loose a mesh (or too tight even?). Quick post-flight had one of my mount screws backed out a bit, other 3 solid. You guys blue loctite your mount screws? I used the 2 fold paper towel method for setting mesh and never had this. Maybe just a bum gear? it was its first flight.

Good news, the min-G is holding the tail very well.

looks like its a bit too loose there. I actually use red loctite around the motor for a better hold. if it's stuck in there just heat up a soldering iron and place it on the screw to loosen the loctite

Yeah, that definitely looks like a loose one caused that.
