Needful Things - Low Profile Lock Nuts / Prop Nuts




Here is a link to the Video:

I was installing the RacerStar SIC 2207 2688kv Motor in my "Glue & Fly" Series F-22 Mini V3 using the Prop Nut that came with the Motor and realized it wasn't going to work.
This Motor does not have a long enough shaft to use a 6x4 Prop with the Stock Prop Nut.
There was not enough of the Shaft beyond the 6x4 prop to allow the Stock Prop Nut to thread all the way down and so the Nylon Thread Lock was useless.
Luckily I had some Low Profile Lock Nuts / Prop Nuts on hand and that saved the day ;-)
Could you imagine not being able to perform Test Flights of a new Motor because the Stock Prop Nut wouldn't work with the Prop you're using?
I certainly don't want to have to wait for Low Profile Prop Nuts to arrive, that would take days or weeks!
Make sure you have some CW & CCW Low Profile Prop Nuts in your kit or supplies as you WILL eventually need them.
