Was doing some set up work on a conversion I am doing at the moment, and thought I would share the story as a laugh or warning, your choice!! Just finished soldering up the ESC and motor plugs, and as well as working out engine mount battery placement etc etc. I have the cooling fan and clutch fitted to the motor shaft, so I decide to test out the speedy and motor and was holding the set up in my hand by the motor mount. SSOOO I run up the motor way fast, and the clutch flies apart and motor jumps out of my hand, no damage done but the clutch bits only just missed me, and did no harm, but it was close!! It was a dumb thing in hind site any way ****e happens!!

As a reminder, I've got 2/3 of a Shuttle clutch nailed to my shop wall after having done the very same thing. I was able to hold on to the mount, but the forces generated by an out of balance clutch at only a couple of thousand rpm are tremendous.

Consider yourself lucky, as did I, right after the projectile richocheted off the walls.

It's amazing how dangerous these little electric motors can be.
