Thought I'd check my Atom with the RC Logger now I can use it properly. Turns out that was out on the head too but not much. Then I thought I wonder if I get the blue light on the BX setup at 6 deg, turns out I don't. Arse.

Anyone in New Zealand got a Scorpion HK-4035-560KV motor they are willing to sell? More after the original not the V111. Cheers

Had a good test with the 6hv but noticed a lack of power. Got home and popped the motor out to find the pinion ok but the whole shaft spins free if I hold the can and turn the shaft. Is it fuxed?

Just took the motor apart (Easier than I thought) and it seems I can just green loctite the shaft the base of the can? Any reason why not?

Hey Ian, I just recently had to replace the shell/shaft on my 6hv motor due to the shaft showing wear at the top where it seats in the bearing. The shaft is definitely press fitted!
Got it from hobbyhangar but think it was the last one.

It's still pretty tight in there but I can turn it by hand if I hold the can. Waiting on a response from rc711 (Let's see if there service is any good) before I just green loctite it.

In the meantime I went through the atom head geometry again. I had some spare Ariiiign servo wheels from the 600 I thought I'd try as they are about 14mm. Turns out they are pretty perfect. Dremelled a bit of the edge so it doesn't touch anything and voila blue and 6 deg just. Then went through and put in 12deg of pitch and 12 deg of cyclic which is about all it will take with the wheels before they either bind or just run out of movement.

Now to change some plugs over to xt60 weee.

I managed to stop in at the scale fun fly in NP on Sunday, some very nice machines there.

Had one quick flight with the Srimok (first since Ham FF in Sept) Matt from RC Bandit clocked it at 196km/hr at 80% throttle, must clock up a few more flights then crank it to 100% and see how fast this machine will go

Having one of those days.

Went to the Tron for a client meeting, Kevin being the GC he is managed to hook me up with a can/shaft for the 6HV. Awesome.

Picked it up on the way home. Managed to rack up enough time to have a half day tomorrow - 6HV spanking time. Double awesome.

Getting out of the car at home, drop new can/shaft on ground, half the magnets come lose. Not awesome very angry.

See if I can press the shaft and fit it in the old can - seems they are slightly different cans?!?!. Getting more angry.

Checked my e-mails got a response from RC711 they have sent my issue request off to Compass. Slightly less angry.

So to sum up the Atom is going to get a hiding tomorrow.

Depending on the response from RC711 I'll just J-B weld the shaft in place until the new one arrives.
