That is the way the plate works, hooks over the cross bars, torques against
the uprights. Works fine, I have had three LM-470's using Ham M or Prop
Pitch motors and never a problem. The weight of the mast holds it secure.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Does anyone know how the rotator plate for an LM470D stays fastened to the
section of the crank-up tower?
Mine doesn't have any means of fastening, but it force fits into the tower
would probably stay there if the rotator, mast, and thrust bearing were in
Is there a better way or what?
