    Probably a good idea to retain the original. You can be sure that the motor will run well in that configuration.

    I don't suppose that there's any chance that you have the wrong direction of rotation?

    Was there ever a full-sized bipe that could be rapidly de-rigged?

    AFAIK, the usual solution was to make folding wings.

    I should make it clear that I haven't used this socket-system with cordless drills. Mine have always employed hefty starter motors.

    Splendid response. Puts me in mind of the general political tenor in the media.

    "Muslims never condemn terrorism."

    "Hey, this Muslim IS condemning terrorism."
