Save those micro tails!

V966, v977, k100, k110!

I use this rubbery glue to coat the end of the tail/motor.

1. Holds the motor in. No more ripping the motor out and pulling the wires with it.

2. It's a rubberized soft glue that, when applied a little thick as shown, absorbs any tail in or sideways crashes.

Motors have not overheated in 90f + temps flying. Saved me many motors and tail holders.

I've not noticed the extra weight on the tail.

Possible that rubber cement will work just as well. Not tested it.

I just cut a piece of shrink tubing and shrink it around the tail motor less messy and it works good in crashes.

Cool. Was just going to ask that! Will try it next. Do you leave a small tail on the shrink so it's like a bumper?

No motor overheating so far. Covered in my post.

As far as ca, I'm not sure how that helps absorb crash impact on the tail/motor. It holds the motor in, but offers no crash damage bumper like protection.
