Well I had an interesting thing happen to my Stella this weekend as well. I have about a dozen flights on it, flies like a champ. Well I landed on Sunday and was going to gun it on the ground to get it back to where I was standing. Instantly the front of the nose EXPLODED!!! The motor mount came apart and disintegrated the cowl as well. The motor is fine. I was asking for trouble because I am using an AXI 2808-24. Anyone using this motor should fiberglass/reinforce the base of the motor mount. Thankfully the rest of the plane is fine. Just a new cowl and new mount and she'll be back in the air in no time. I'll try to post pics later this afternoon
