I recently suffered a crash with myGoblin 700 and I was flying without a canopy. The short of the long is that upon hitting the ground my motor had a small chunk taken out of it by hitting a rock on the ground.

Can I still use this motor case? Is it likely that the motor will stay balanced and not cause vibration? What do you propose as a remedy to this issue and if there are parts involved to the remedy, can you point me to the appropriate place on the web?

By the way, I am also posting a picture of double sided tape, gray in color, and I'm pretty sure it is made by 3M, but was wondering if someone can tell me precisely what type of double sided tape it is.

Thanks in advance!

Yeah, I would say it will be out of balance. Is there a way to take that apart? If so, I would clean it up, maybe have an experienced tig welder fill it in and then spend the time to sand and reshape. THEN put it on a highpoint balancer and balance to the best of your abilities.

The tape sure looks like 3m. As for the chunk, maybe you can build up a test stand and run the motor up to see if it vibes. I would be worried the shaft might have a bend in it as well.

Test it out to see how bad it is before you do anything with it. Who knows you might not even notice it.
Spool it up on the bench first without main or tail blades!

From the picture it is hard to tell if any metal was removed or if it is just deformed. If just deformed and no metal was removed the balance won't change. If a little metal is missing just go directly across (180 degrees) and file a notch removing about the same amount of metal that was lost in the crash. Then mount the motor without pinion a spin it up and check for vibration.
