Look at this DLE-30, somethings wrong

I was doing a YouTube search to see if there was any videos of you guys with your DLE-30's.
I came across this one and noticed something wrong.
As the guy tachs it up to get an rpm reading, look at the nuts that he used as stand-offs.
He must have put them over some machine screw or something, which he must not have them tight.
The nuts start rolling on the machine screws from the vibration.
Then towards the end of the video it looks as if the engine is gonna fall of the plane.
I have done some stupid stuff, but never running a engine that is ready to fall off.

That was bad. I hope that he tightened everything up before he flew it!

Re: Look at this DLE-30, somethings wrong

Actually we can change this thread into "what was your dumb move?"
No dumb thumb stories, since we all have been there and done that.
I'll start off. I lost a 30% plane due to filling the smoke tank with gas and never filling the fuel tank.
Two and a half minutes into the flight she ran out, too far out and couldn't get it back to the field.
In she went.
No one to blame but myself.
I now have two totally different fill fittings for smoke and fuel.

He will probable post somewhere that his crappy DL 30 vibrated so much it made it fall right off of the airplane.
