While I’ll freely admit I don’t know much about the care and feeding of LiPo batteries, this item and all items ordered from Heads Up have lived up my expectations. The folks at HU have been timely and spot-on on answering questions about parts and such.
While I’ll freely admit I'm not an expert on propellers, this one was fine until I hooked up a Servo Tester in the Auto/Centering position with the prop on. The motor and prop, laying loose on the table took off like crazy, jumped up and hit the magnifier, I was fortunately wearing, otherwise I would have ended up in the hospital having multiple stitches to patch up a serious forehead wound. Than God I was wearing that magnifier. Only damage was a prop with dinks, dins and stress marks and a bent shaft on the motor. The replacement prop and shaft from HU arrived a few hours ago. Haven't had time to replace the shaft yet. I have had the bent shaft out so the replacement should be no problem.
Note To Self: No props on a motor that is on a test bench and having the battery hooked up unless that has to be the situation. Otherwise one mental laps and very bad thing can happen.
