I have a new Titan that has sheared the bolts off of the clutch twice. It has only had about 3 or 4 tanks run through it. The first time it was about 10 feet off the ground and it made a funny noise so I set it down quickly, I thought that it had spun the nut off but it sheared the bolts. This last time I didnt even know it, I have been hovering around my driveway some(no time to go to field to fly) and everything was ok a week later I go to crank it up and I discover that it had sheared the bolts off and chewed up the end of the hub on the fan. Any ideas as to what this could be caused from?

It's been posted lots of times, The bolts are slightly to long and bottom out in the hole leaving the clutch loose,grind a bit off the bolts next time or buy a quick uk fan

I put a washer under the capheads, which was a simple solution.

I have a couple of plastic fans if you need one.

The general consensus is that some holes aren't tapped deep enough, the washer or bolt grinding solve the problem.
