That's never happened before!!
Doing some inverted hovering with my Evo 50 and the starter coupling falls off into my brand new Radix 600s. End result; one blade shattered on the leading edge. No other damage after I landed right away. So, I need a single Radix if you have one

I had same thing happen a few weeks ago but I got away with no damage. I heard a "tap during a flip and thought I touched the boom with blades and landed to wipe my pants only to find no damage to boom and a missing starter coupler. Now I carry an extra one and loctite.

The sound was really scary. It looks like I found a blade already. I thought I had loctite on that screw. Oh well...

I've had the coupling work loose and it's worth checking the grub screw still has it's flat on the bottom surface. I noticed that a dent had appeared causing the grub screw to lose it's grip against the shaft even though it felt secure. Hope this makes sense.

Mine has came loose in flight before but never came off.

I would not put much loctite on the set screw either.

You will never be able to remove the engine if you get too much on it.

I had to drill my set screw out once because I stripped it out.
