O c'mon wheres your sense of adventure?!! It works fine, good actually. Its a steady pressure vs tapping and taking a chance at bending it and jarring everything loose. Its just frightening when it breaks loose. You get that "Oh now" feeling in your belly, followed by a "whew" when you see its all good. I dont push mine anymore anyways. Just tried it once to give someone else here some advice on how it was done.

I used a deep well socket,next to motor in the vise was easy to do.also dont think about trying to remove the retaining clip,just get it out of the groove,then as you slide the motor it pushes the clip along until you get to the next groove.I used a small screw driver between the ends of clip,give it just a little turn and clip pops up on to the shaft.

I did the Dubro skiis today and two of them broke on soft powder landings. Time to try the floats or thoughs Canadian Aluminum Skiis!

Buzz kill, I agree, I need some more snow so I can do some real testing. It hasnt snowed since last week and with the freeze thaw cycle, it is super crusty in the mornings and super sticky in the afternoon. Not so sure I can get a good test flight in with the floats on in either condition, But I may get a chance this weekend, if my field isnt too tracked up by morons.

I did the exact same thing...2 x 4's with a hole with the motor case against the wood...worked great! And I didn't have to beat on the shaft with a hammer! The vice worked very nicely...it was just that the press fit was more than I expected. I actually got this idea from someone else's suggestion on this this thread some time ago. At least I think it was here...it could have been on the Corsair thread. I figured pressing was better than beating. I have sure been wrong before.

Question?

I have a new big eflite 40 amp esc with pro switchmode bec. It has the wire that goes to the receiver wrapped through a small metal cylinder. I think this is to minimize interference with receiver. I used to know what that do-hickey was called. Can I remove it since I use 2.4 ghz?

Ferrite ring maybe. I looked at the Radios forum and there seems to be varying opinions whether or not to use them. Most say not required. Some say it can't hurt.

Still fun in the air as long as you are careful with the ground effects turbulence on landing huh?

I am testing mine tomorrow. The snow is crusty now, so not a powder test, but I will let you know how it goes. Though I MAY suggest other than the super cub floats because of the slight nose down attitude, even after I hogged out the rear mount as far into the wing as I dare. i will let you know for sure tomorrow afternoon sometime.

I was actually landing like I was hovering. Pretty cool.

I flew the Dubro skis yesterday. LOTs of fun, no powder (wish there was) it was "hard" snow but, still no issues at all. Some drag was noticed but it was negligible.

Can't wait for Crystal Lake to freeze thick enough to get out on it. Set some tip-ups and fly

Going to go test the floats now. Unfortunately someone elses maiden trumped my float maiden, so I have to fly in a different location. (Weeds too tall in the other location and the snow hasnt knocked them down yet.) I probably wont have any photos or videos to post but I will let you know who she did later.
