The original prop hub made from Plastic (F4U LX model)

The original prop hub made from Plastic
when stored for a while there will be changes to the framework conditions and rupture.
I have tried using it already.
Try removing and then find that the pivot pin fastened to the blade fracture.
This is a point that is extremely risky. The rotor rotates faster and centrifugal high.
This may cause an unexpected event
I've ever seen at any time in the VDO Below are the results
from the hub of the propeller plane was broken during a test flight for the first time.
Therefore, to ensure that each rotor hub is not broken,
it should switch to a hub made from aluminum, it is much better in terms of strength.
And reduce the risk to occur.
