Just did a search forgive me if this has been posted before. Today while flying all of a sudden the case separated got it down with just damage to tail blades but has this happened to anyone else?

Haven' heard of this problem since the old gold end-belled 430L's. Glueing it back together was probably the standard, but there may be damage that can't be repaired, easily.

Thats odd...
Ive taken a few 430 motors apart and the end bells are threaded and use a aggressive thread lock.
Any pics?

Which motor? I had a 420lf fall apart like that. I JB Welded the case back on and it worked fine after that.

Thanks guys, one more thing to add to the preflight checklist.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

I think it was a 420 I have to take it apart tonight. At first I thought the motor came loose until I moved it and found out that the mounting plate was still intact. Almost like having a clutch break in flight except without the moter overreving.
