Trex 450 stock motor came apart
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?

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.
