It does look like that! Huh. Funny how such a tiny thing can be a failure mode. I wonder if that groove wasn't there, would the force have been transmitted and dissipated elsewhere?

Anyway, not about to look a gift horse in the mouth. I walked away from a premature landing with just a bent prop shaft!

Yeah I know... It only took 30sec to fix it once the iron heated up. Sucked since I was finally able to get out to the field and get some time with it...

Actually at first I though it was just park of my lower wing repair and when I realized it wasn't I landed. Good thing I did because the 2 of the clear hinges on the under side had failed as well.

Most of them were self-induced, though. From my poor selection of servos, to having them be glued in, to general noobishness at flying
