I am a firm believer in silly questions, and this may very well be one of them...
I have no experience with small electric motors for airplanes. I've used the larger ones, and found them quite straight-forward.
I recently purchased a Park 250 from HK. It came with a prop adapter and motor mount. This one here: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=19031
My question is this - what's the best/most logical/least damaging way to reverse the shaft, so I can use the prop adapter and motor mount?
The adapter quite obviously mounts onto the long shaft... but the long part is sticking out the back end of the motor, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to remove the shaft and reverse it. Or if this is even necessary.
I've tried removing the set screws on the bell end, and the small circlip at the bearing end. The shaft refuses to budge. I'm afraid to apply too much pressure...
Any other outrunners I have, the long part of the shaft sticks out the front... and the motor mount fits to the back.
I look forward to your responses!
