Why does this keep happening to my motors?
OK, I'll suck it up and ask.
I'll see if I can explain the problem. After a couple flights nearly all of my motors have this problem. The gap between the C clip and rear of the bell housing increases. The bell then pulls away from the base as if on a rubberband. Only a few mm, but it has a tendancy to increase. Unless I interfer and losen the set screw put the shaft in a vice and tap the shaft back. Then tighten the set screw again. Then that holds for a while and it starts again after a few flights. The motor sounds awful/ awesome (almost like a small gasser) when it starts happening. Any input would be nice.
