In Flight Motor Failure

So I finally got to do some testing without crazy winds, then THIS happens!


Oh well, it could have been very bad, but I was lucky and did not have any major issues.


I have some repairs to do, but in reality I was thinking of doing the mod I NEED to do now anyway, so... NBD!



That dark spot on the red wire is where it melted.




Views of the melted plastic/foam board with blind nuts for the motor mount.

The motor mount actually melted into the plastic/foam board. 

The plastic/foam board is scrap material left over from faux window blinds.

It works well, but can have issues...

Actually I use it often and this is the first time I've had any kind of failure.
