Installing tail motor

While trying to remove the tail rotor I accedentaly yanked out half of the tail motor (that tail rotor blade just didn't want to come off!) Need some advice on how to remove the remaing half and install new motor....thanks

I've heard the tail rotor is all but impossible to remove without damaging it. It sounds like you will have to replace the tail motor and rotor completely. You can get the motor for 5.00 and rotor for 2.00 here:

I think you are right, the tail rotor blade was so tight on the shaft that the motor came out with the blades leaving the very bottom piece of the motor still in the mount,D'oh. Anyway I got the small piece out of the mount and i'll order the two new pieces.....thanks
