Hi all,

"Many".... maybe not "most", and certainly not "all".

Not on the BP Hobbies ( Suppo ) H2217-4 .
I am going to take the shaft to a friend to cut a new snap ring groove on the large inner shaft end. The end that was held by a set screw. It needs to be as close to the end as possible. That allows the motor leads to be on the end opposite of the propellor.

Why would anyone want to have to tightly bend back the motor leads ? China still needs some time.
