just ordered the new toy today,got the bug after purchasing a $30 job a couple of days ago,got the hang of it pretty quick and was having great fun with it today until the bloody thing lost power and fell in between the workshop wall and the top of the roller door and jammed,got it out by raising and lowering the door but it got mangled,kinda flew but was out of control,
me thinks i will need some serious patience with the new one:)

hi all.just after some advice if possible,i have the new wasp V4 and it appears the clutch (one way bearing) is slipping,that is,the main motor is turning but the blades start off turning ok then,the clutch drive starts slipping,so basically the motor is turning at full speed but no rotor spin.
i did read something about a non slip application for this clutch drive assy.?
it's a little bit difficult to see exactly how the clutch works without stripping it down,
any thoughts?
