Here is my solution to holding the arm clasp from vibrating open 4 x 5mm rubber blocks cable tied to the back plate
Good job… that’s one way to do it. Here’s another way… I got rid of the knobs altogether and I love it! Here’s a link:
Yep I think your way would be a great mod on future kits…added these after the maiden flight an easy fix without dismantling the rig
Are they even needed? I think the point of the locks is to keep the arms extended while the hoop/cage is being assembled. Once it’s assembled, I think it’s no longer an issue.
Yeah tbh while testing I’ve flown a few times without them even installed and the friction of the hinges and the pressure of the thrust keeps them in place.
Whats the old saying
“Better to have and not need - then to need and not have” or was that just for condoms! :>)
Haven’t really seen it as an issue. With the hinge friction, hinge limit, hoop & netting and the prop thrust, it’s not going anywhere.
