Friendly Reminder - be careful with those props
Complacency is a killer. In testing a new motor on my bench stand, I was careless and brought my knuckle too close to the prop edge. The result was 5 bone deep slices right on the first joint of my pointer finger– each about 0.5 cm long. Too small for stitches – but man two days later, still hurts like heck. Never cut myself on a prop before, just got complacent with these lil motors/props.

I feel your pain. For the record don't go messing around with the channel reversing switches on the back of you tx when your motor mounted on a plane with the battery connected and you're sitting in front of it. OOUCH!
Fortunately my hand was between the prop and my, uh...... more sensitive areas.

EXACT same expe,rience about 5 days ago. Got my knuckle, you can see how the prop kept going around, the cut is like a spiral, it goes in, farther, then farther out as the prop went. OUCH!
