    Hi David,
    Maybe a modification to the length of the bushing to allow it to pass through the aluminum plate and into a recess in the bulkhead, I attached a sketch. The leak in my port prop shaft is fixed & now a slight one started on the starboard one so since I had an extra seal I tried taking of the entire housing & then replacing the seal the way you suggested. MUCH easier! I have an ESC in one of my planes, can't remember the type right now but it's about the size of a nickel. When you think back to the hardware we had for models 20 years ago, today's stuff is pretty amazing.

      Yes, exactly right on the insulation fix for the antenna lug. Hey ... you're pretty smart! I'll steal it.

      When I got into the r/c game we still had to wind up a rubber band to 'power' the rudder escapement.

      "... well, that takes care of Jorgenson's theory!"
