      Here's the task list for the August 15th (or 16th) Buckminster contest. Please note, A few things have changed In the rules for this year.... Poker only has three nominations allowed. The new 'one flight' task, task L, has a single launch allowed the max score is 9:59.  (Do you go on the hooter or wait until you think you can fly the slot out??) The flight time shall be recorded to 0.1 seconds. Rounding up is not applied. Before each working time, there must be a preparation time period of 60 seconds when flying is not allowed.   After all the model gliders of the previous group have landed, the competitors flying in the next group receive 45 seconds of flight testing time, which is part of the preparation time. The dropped score is applied after 12 rounds. (Was 5)   The timing files for the PA don't include as much detail as the rules at the moment.  I'll do my best to announce the details.

      I've only assembled a couple of gearboxes but I've used 648 without any problems but there's no flat on the motor shaft. If the pinion is over that part of the shaft that has the flat you might always get problems, it's not designed to fill such a large gap. I've also read where someone used an old bottle of compound retainer and the pinion would let go easily, a new bottle of 648 solved the problem as I remember. Here's the data sheet if this helps http://www.henkeladhesivesna.com/aam/Retaining_LT3770_AAM_Chart_Interactive.pdf
