Northern Colorado (Pawnee Nat’l Grasslands)
Motor appeared to perform nominally. Unable to remove 6 grain 54 mm case by sliding out aft end of motor mount. Removed rear closure so I could slide it out the forward end of motor mount to find a bulge in the case 1-2” from the forward end of the case. The bulge extended out about 3-5mm out from the normal case diameter.
As mentioned above, the motor performance appeared normal (simulated altitude consistent with actual altitude noted by altimeter). Vendor (MotoJoe) replaced case and will address with CTI.
