My 450 motor blew up - well not quite
Actually what happen was I bumped the throttle and bang the shaft snapped where the C-clip goes [ guess its a weak spot ] when the motor suddenly powered up (must be a good motor)
Motor was a 2832 , and no 2832 shafts to be found on Ebay ..
Took a punt on some 2830 shafts that were about 2mm shorter .
Long story short , shafts came today , took all of 5 minutes to have the motor back together again
Moral of the story , use the throttle lock out ...
I bumped the throttle from 0 or standing start to full [ obviously no soft start ] , and full throttle is 80% on mine .. [ set at the transmitter ]
So 0 to 80% with everything stationary ... , the main gear [ main cog ] took a beating [ but I had a spare ] ....
Motor ran fine , this was 100% user error ...
