Falcon 500 Failure Mode Completely Sheared Shaft Screws

A slight upmark? Even if you get the time it takes down to 20 minutes per motor, you’re talking about a pretty big labor cost per motor.

My time whilst watching Battlebots on the workbench computer is basically free, I’ll add.
I think a $10-15/motor uptick is reasonable to stomach, which would still be tricky to hit after factoring in doubled shipping costs.

If this ends up being a thing you could bulk order on mondays for free shipping

Genuinely I think the solution to this is a design with fewer moving parts. Attempting to QC the problems away seems to be a swamp.

Jumping in on this thread. We didn’t have sheared screws but had this. @PatrickW is this what you are talking about in your post above?

We had that one too earlier this season, glad to see we’re not the only ones with that specific issue.
