I type from my phone or 7inch tablet. 2 more weeks and I should be in a new house. trying to find an internet provider for the area (no one says they have it there ) looks like I might have to go with the satellite internet

Hey guys just to let you know getting the shaft out of an omega motor is easyer if you loosen the screws holding the shaft first.

Well my 47" just about did that into a small tree (I think of Aron when I say tree ) I went into KE spin and went to get out of it and it just kept going pulled it into a hover just in time, it was about 10ft from the ground and the tree branches were moving after I basically ran into it and got luck and flew away.

Then, I was doing a blender came out of it went for 3 flat spins and the motor just had no power (dead battery) I was already stalled with 25 ft and couldn't do much it ended up going into the nose at about a 30 degree angel way out in the feild, it was loud to but not even a crack on the cowl did not take off the cowl yet.

I brought her in, I could not touch the motor, I spun the motor and something is in there and it does not spin so freely anymore. Oh and that battery pack went from 12.6v to 9.9v with in 4:30 seconds....I need a gas plane.
O I love gassers for sure. My DLE 30 has been trouble free. And I never worry about it over heating. And 20 plus minutes flights.

Ok I planned on having fun hucking tomarrow but I guess not. I am putting the 103g on that way I can atleast fly, the was a small washer in my 130g and I got that out but it is still rubbing alittle bit, is there anything I can do to my 130g like send it somewhere and they fix it? Or am I stuck with this dud motor and have to spend 50$ on a new one? If I am stuck with this I think I am gonna buy motro fly because you can send a motor to him and he can fix it right?

The magnets are rubbing still, I can feel and hear it, I spin my 103g and I hear nothing but smooth but then I get like a grinding teeth and gravel sound when I spin the 130g which is the magnets. When I opened the motor it was obvious there is some rubing going on.
