The first problem that I ran into is that the arrow shaft I purchased was a bit too large for the holes in the 3d printed parts. I believe it was a 19/64 in shaft which measures 7.6 mm and the holes measure 7.25 or 9/32 in. So rather than tryomg to find the right size shaft I just made the holes larger using tinkercad. After some experimenting I found that 7.9mm seems to be the right diameter to set in tinkercad. The tricky one was the motor mount as that is at angle.

Since I only have the motor I figured I may as well just order the power A radial from the FT store.

Decided to change this in favor of the FT Long EZ but will keep this log open in case I resume this build at a later date.
