Default HKing Bushmaster motor

Yesterday I maidened the new Bushmaster, flew great last flight. Stiff x wind dipped a wing lightly, no damaged but the prop hit the grass and the motor shaft broke throwing the prop collet and spinner about 15 ft away. I ordered another outrunner from HK and tried to get info about the motor fitting the supplied mount. Nobody knows a damned thing there....I'm also trying to ask them if they warrantee this motor, the shaft shouldn't have broken so easily. There wasn't even any dirt on the spinner cone! I will get it running again, I will fly it and like it but HK will not get another dime from me...their product knowledge and cooperation is dreadful.
Thanks for your HK experience, I'm probably not the only one! I must add however, the airplane goes together easily, parts fit (except control horn screws) and it does fly well!

What type of Collette and prop adapter does it use?

If the shaft broke, they are pretty much standard. You could look for one here.

Caveat emptor with HK. They have some good stuff, and some of the other stuff. I never buy from them expecting any support, and so I have yet to be disappointed. And I love the inexpensive batteries, ESC's, regulators, etc.

Does the Bushmaster have favorable reviews?
