Finally took some pictures of the motor. You can see where I had to sand the rear stators to keep the magnets from rubbing. Honestly it was not that much sanding so it wouldnít have been too much trouble for them to fix at the factory. Now that the rotor spins freely, it appears that the magnets are quite strong. The cogging is much more pronounced when compared to the 5065 SK motor thatís been a great performer for me.

Its a little hard to see but the gaps between the magnets are not filled with epoxy so that will be the next order of business. JB Weld has quick drying epoxy now and thatís what I will be using. Ill post pictures when I get started on that.

I ordered a 6mm collet from Tower yesterday along with the 4" Zinger spinner so once I get the those and the shaft material this week I can get the motor and props mounted up. That is if I have any time.
