I was just at that other helicopter forum and was reading some advice given to a first time builder by one of its so called moderators. Anyway this first time builder had some questions about how to tighten the fan and nut on his engine. This moderator recommended putting a piece of wood in the exhaust port to snug it down. Now it was pointed out that you should never put wood or anything else in the exhaust port and that it was better to use the old tooth brush handle in the carb hole method. This moderator replied that he had been using wood in the exhaust port for 10+ years but he prefered using a piston lock tool, I won't even get started on that tool and the damage it can do in the wrong or right hands.

The point of all of this is that I see a lot of really scary advice being handed out over there and if anyone challenges the moderators they seem to get a little testy. I've only been in R/C for 20 years the last 4 or so in helicopters, however I do know that its not a good idea to use anything in the exhaust port to keep the engine from spinning and I also know you never grab a fan by the blades to tighten it, so for you new guy's beware of advice you get you may want to check around before you jump in and follow it.

I dont think of a moderator as an experienced modeler just because he is a moderator, he is no different from me or you. I look at a moderator as someone with computer experience, that just happens to be in the hobby. However they can be a source of good information too, just like the rest of us. Daz...

Advise in any forum can be bad, even by a moderator. I must admit though, since they got rid of that moron moderator, the advise is getting better over there.

If it was on a .30 size motor, a piston locking tool can be used no problem.

Blade,
It shouldn't be that hard to figure out. Just think about the moron that used to be a moderator, but now is not.

If you still can't think of it, email me.
