    Does anyone know what is the tolerance for a motor play?
    Our ALTA has 18 hours flight time and I have noticed a little play with motor no. 8. I have tightened all bolts, propellers and such, looks like the play is in the motor hub. Should I sent it for a service?

    Please, find attached video for a sight. There is some noise in the background but the noise of the play is noticeable.

    Rolands, that seems to be more play in the propeller hinge on the motor and appears to be within normal limits. But, if you're in doubt, by all means open up a ticket by sending an email to Freefly Support (support@freeflysystems.com) and ask them -- cite to this posting.
