My omega motor was making some weird noises. I took it off and brought it over to let Ben take a look at it while I was at FLI. He told me to tighten the bolts on the prop adapter.

Problem solved.

And .1985"= 5.04mm You can drill a 3/16" wheel collar to .1990 with a #8 drill bit....

So the axles are metric and not........... standard ?

Anyone know where to get metric axles or does it matter think something else will work and fit the wheel and landing gear hole.

.

Pretty much any wheel with a 3/16" hub could be drilled out to fit, as there is only a difference of .011"... 3/16" is .1875" and 5.04mm is .1985. Drill the wheel out with a #8 drill, which is .1990", so....0005" difference..

This is actually a pretty good lesson. I think we are all probably guilty of jumping to the assumption that a more complex issue is at hand when we are faced with a problem. It always pays off to check the simple things first!

My version of that lesson was at the other end of the motor - the motor mount bracket was coming loose from the motor.

The lesson I got from that is always use loctite on motor mounts.

I was going to... but it arrived too fast for me to organise it. it's only a couple of hours drive from my employer and only a couple of hours from AMain Hobbies to the north... if they hold it again next year, maybe I can get there...

Anyone have dimensional data for the hacker A100-10 motor mount?

I'm trying to figure out what OD standoff would sit flush with the edges of the mounting plate.

THANKS!

I was hoping to go, but that isn't working out. Maybe if it was about a month earlier or later.
