    Ever had a deformed prop?

    Hi All,

    Has anyone had a deformed prop?

    I took my Spartan out the other day for a run. The conditions where calm with a few (but not many, just enough to add some fun), waves (about 2-4inches high). I went through to sets of Gens Ace 11.1v 500mah Lipo's (no heat problems since I added the rudder with dual pick up).

    At the end of the session, I found the prop a bit loose. I had a look, the Bullet nut was still tights as, but the Prather 220 prop had opened up where the Drive Dog sits in. Has anyone had this happen?

    Greatly disappointed.

    Check the tightness of your drive dog or better take of the pin bolt then put a blue loctite, I use a lot of props but didn't encounter this problem.
    BTW check also your strut if it's centered with the drive line there might be a binding or something touching, there should be a washer between the drive dog & strut.
    Sharing is the best thing to do on EARTH legally.
