Okay - here's what I use for o-rings:
  • Exceed Rocket 2204 1700kv - # 35 (two at a time - fits under prop saver and easier to get on)
  • Old Twisted 1500kv - #13 (only needs one)

Regards,

JC

Just make sure your holding the motor when your putting them on and not the nose of the plane. You can pull harder on them then without risking pulling the motor mount off or damaging something else on the airframe.

I can't keep up with this tread so I apologize if this idea has already been posted.

I started my Crack Yak tonight in hope that it will make the trip with me to SEFF.
I just wanted to post a picture of how I kept the upper fuselage 90 degrees to the wings.
