Hullo, i have a situation i think you can help with.
Im on my first plane, an FT flyer. As expected i have introduced it into the ground a handful of times. (Held up reasonably well, and for two dollars i can fabricate a replacement fuselage) but what im having problems with is my brushless electric motor.
It held the first few crashes fine, even when my prop didnt. However, after this latest crash it has stopped working. There is no esc error code, when i throttle up it tries to turn but ends up just twitching. And if i turn the motor by hand it feels very snug rather than almost free spinning like before. Disassembly and cleaning did not help. Intuition tells me i bent a prop shaft or bell housing and made my motor less-than-brushless. But im hoping it will be something that wont require spare parts.
On that note would it be a pain to find a replacement propshaft for an emax cf2805?
