Go for it. We can take it.

Between my knee problem and my back, I sometimes wish for meds that would help but, I don't even like taking aspirin.

Hope you feel better, and are back at work soon.
Well, feeling Better.
(I know if it wasn't for needing $$$, I wouldn't work)...

Hi Manta.....

Gripe away my friend... My son was working for a large sports equipment chain, and was the lead for the crew that delivers and sets up the large equipment. There was a guy that nobody else wanted to work with and he wasn't getting his "outside store" hours, and so the company told my son to take him out. They were delivering a large "eliptical" machine to an upstairs apartment, and as they were taking the machine up the stairs, the other guy was at the top, and he let go...my son had a choice...let it roll him down the stairs, or try to stop it. He stepped back and braced himself, and as he did, he heard a bunch of load pops...he now has five crushed discs in his thoracic spinal area. The only way to do surgery is to crack the ribs on one side....deflate the lung, do the needed work...re-inflate that lung, do the same thing on the other side, then close him up and roll him over to work from the back.
The spinal surgeon my son has is one of the best (and has even seen one at UCSF Hospital.) and neither want to perform this surgery, as, not only is it very dangerous, but they can't guarantee it will even help....basically his back is fubar....

Grrr, the brass collar around the rear shaft on my GR-60 is a super-tight fit in the firewall hole, so much so that the motor can't turn when installed. :/

That's actually ok, for now. If the motor mount sides flat against the firewall, go ahead and drill your bolt holes, then relieve the hole later fo the collar has clearance. I think that's what we had to do on mine.

I'm really, really missing my SC. I loved that plane. Good thing I've got one coming, but now that Jim lives across the state it might be a few weeks before I can get it built and sorted. I'm shooting for the Mid Florida 3DHSOC Throwdown on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, but if not, Rob is rebuilding my old one for his armada, and maybe he'll let me run a pack through it.

Oh it's already drilled and stuff, this was final install lol.

I'll just sand, be a pain be oh well.

What's that collar do anyway? I've always left them off, but the build vids/thread were particular about making sure to use it on this one so I did.

The thrust of the prop is trying to pull the motor apart. The collar holds it together. It takes about 5 seconds to go around the inside of hole with an xacto.

Great question. I have wondered as well. My theory was it prevented the motor's axle from being pulled out the front under high load. But that didn't seem to be sense to me either since the axle seemed to stay put just fine on its own.

Hmmm, knife a better idea than sanding I think. Thanks again!

roll the sandpaper up, it's easy. Or do Ben's suggestion of an x-acto knife... pick one.
