The damn motor locked up..... took it apart to find the "round bracket type ring" that holds all the magnets in precise order I guess you can say..... start working its way back out of the can...started to rub on the motor half mounted to the firewall.... anyhow, I tapped it back in carefully... and used 30 minute epoxy all around including between all the magnets.... I think I did a pretty nice job on it.... will find out today.... but I did power up the motor last night and it seemed fine.... just want the epoxy to cure.... Did I use the right stuff ? I used a 30 minute epoxy.....never had to re-glue magnets before in my 4 years of flying !! I hope I dont need a new motor. 5 1/4" CG if im not mistaken ?? Don't want any surprises during the maiden... Thanks for your time everyone... and man does that pjn xoar WHITE prop w/red tips look sweet !!

Thanks and have a blast with the maiden.
