from the start.
    While I endorse the PP solution, the problem with  the Orion is the mast 
clamp. It's big and heavy but does a lousy job of  holding a mast. The teeth 
need machining - they're different lengths - and so  do the surfaces of the 
nuts and bolts - the dimpled surface gets squashed down  over time and the nuts 
loosen up. K7NV is the one that suggested these  problems and fixes them 
himself with FB results. 
    He also has lovely prop-pitches available -  expensive but lovely. 
    I sell them occasionally and send them to M2 for  integration with the 
Orion control box. Perhaps a better solution would be the  new Green Heron 
control box.
