Because the motor is mounted on one end, and the way it impack (nose dive). The weight of the motor and the cantilever effect bent the bottom of the motor foward a little bit, enough to cause bad gear mess. I bent the mount back and it's all good.

What kind of temperatures are you getting on that 430SP motor after a flight?

Seriously, is this going to be manufactured and sold?

If yes, I'm in. Where do I send the PayPal?

If no, can I send this thread to a friend who does short-run CNC manufacturing?
