Is the motor shaft removeable on DIY Drones Motor AC2830-358, 850Kv? If so, how would I remove the shaft? I have slightly bent a shaft, and have an extra motor. I was hoping I could just replace the…Continue

Do the accelerometer readings determine the position after the initial GPS read or does the copter rely solely on GPS readings for the loiter and auto modes?Also, I am in the process of fine-tuning…Continue

"If the shaft is bent most likely (I would hope!) it is bent above where it enters the housing leaving the part inside straight.  Pull out/towards the bent part vs trying to drag the bent part all the way through the motor/housing."

"Oh nice.  I didn't even realize there was a grub screw.  So are you saying if the shaft is bent, it is difficult to remove?  What did you do in your case?"

"You can use a bench-top vise and a large socket as an anvil, if you don't have access to an arbor press. Chill the new shaft on dry-ice and heat up the motor bell before you re-assemble, the temp differential makes a lot of difference in the…"

"Cool...I did not realize jDrones have them (of course they are out of stock at the moment ;-) Replacement is super-simple.  Remove the clip from the bottom, pull the upper motor housing up/off with the shaft attached.  Then loosen the…"

"JDrones also carries these shafts.  Here is their description: "If you have bend your shaft due collision, here is replacement shaft. You need to have oilpress or similar to push new shaft on it's place." Seems like a pain in the…"

"Heat is often an useful tool for removing a pressed in shaft. The motor bell (can) is aluminum, which will absorb heat quickly, and expands at a higher rate than the steel shaft. "

"I don't know if this would work, but is there any chance you could fabricate a suitable replacement from a piece of 3/8" music wire with a dremel?  Cutting the groove for the clip might be tricky, but I bet it could be done."

"Argghh!  No response...and now the link to the correct shaft does not work.  Does anyone else have a source for just the motor shafts?"

"Cody - I had the same issue. I ordered 10 of the replacements and only 3 of them came through with the groove for the c-clamp. I reached out to rc-timer though and let them know the other 7 were incorrect and replacements are on the way. I presume…"

"I just had to separate the motor to solder a broken wire lead, so yes the shaft is separable, the 1.5 mm grub screw must be loosened, and when refitting I would advise you to add some blue loctite on it."

"Remove the circlip under the motor and pull the shaft up. The motor will come apart. Undo the grub screw in the top of the motor housing and pull the shaft out. Might be a tight fit."

"Yeah, you can order replacement shafts from rctimer. They also sell a new style prop adapter that bolts to the 2830, but you need to cut the shaft to fit it. I use a dremel tool to do that. Jason"
