Magnets are loose on my AXN motor

Postby Buzzard » Mon Oct 24, 2011 10:55 pm

After 25 flights the magnets in the motor of my AXN are becoming very loose in the housing and two have almost fallen out. I have tried to push both them back into place with out success. Has anyone else had this problem? What is the best way to fix this?

From memory the advice on RCGroups and elsewhere is to glue them back in with some epoxy, using a toothpick to spread it around the can evenly so as not to upset the balance too much.

Quote from an AXN build wiki:

"Some motors might develop a problem with the magnets shifting from their position. Some magnets might have insufficient Epoxy glue to hold them in place over repeated use. Do an inspection and if necessary add small amounts of clear Epoxy glue into the slots around the entire barrel. This is to keep the mass when spinning around the center balanced. "

What goes up...better bloody stay up (until I say otherwise).
