Will a bent shaft make the motor and esc run hot?
In the process of getting my Katana set up right, I noticed a slight wobble in the shaft. I did'nt catch it until after the first flight when I went to change props.This was only mild flying andI only ran the plane for about 3 minutes on the first flight and the motor and esc were too hot to touch, but the battery was'nt even warm. I have a Scorpion S3020-12 motor, Scorpion 90a esc, and I am using a Turnigy 3000mah/3s/40-50c battery with a 12x8 prop. I have checked the setup with the drive calculator and the watt meter. The system isoperating well below the 57a for the motor. Could the slightly bent shaft be the problem? Is it possible for just the prop adapter to be bent? Any ideas on what Ishould do?...................Thanx...........TD
