Hi Spencer,

I have a heaps of black motor related stuff (i'm a 3DR distro).  Let me know if you don't have any luck elsewhere.

Ive got a spare entire black motor if you want it, in mybox of kool stuff(tm). Pretty sure it works.

Oh ouch i thought you meant the bolt to keep the prop from flying off :) not the shaft thingo.

@Spencer

Turns out that blue adapters do screw on black motors. Priv msg your address and ill post 1 or 2 on monday.

Hi mP1 - unfortunately they are not. Yours have 4 holes. The black ones have only 3. Thanks very much for replying though :)

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.

Hi folks,

I finally got to SaveTrim my Hquad yesterday and was a success.

Then I checked for interference using Mission Planner "compassmot"
The results:

-at 10% throttle: 57% of mag field
-at 50% throttle : 151% of mag field
-at 80% throttle: 229% of mag field
:eek:

What materials is best to shield my APM2.5? Foam? Plastic? Wood?

I plan to re-wire my red & black esc wires.  And plan to move APM higher on the frame.
