Dear All,

I live in Perth, Australia. This week I broke a prop adapter for a black 880kV motor - this is the piece that is screwed to the top of each motor - you attach the prop to this. It had already been weakened after I straightened it after a crash.

I am helping out this week on a field trip with a group of botanical researchers in country WA collecting plant material. I was all set to get some habitat footage with my Y6 to help their project. I have some spare motors on order from 3dr but they will not arrive in time. I don't know any place in Oz that supplies these motors.

This is a humble request - does anyone live in the Perth area that is able to lend me a spare prop adapter for next week? I can happily pay with a slab of beer :D

Single sheet will block almost all signals, it will also redirect signals so you can wrap a sheet around 1/2 of your wireless router toward your workstation to boost the signal.
