I've had a folded prop rip the motor right off the mount when I added a lot of power while it was folded. One blade trailed just a bit past straight back, and didn't unfold while the prop on the other side did! Add power cautiously..
Thanks for the heads up. did you have a prop stop on their when it did that?
