60. Follow the directions and put things together the right way the first time so you don't have to rip something apart when you realize why it didn't work. Wright Stuff treated me kindly.

65. If the propeller's axle hole is four times too large for the motor's axle, filling the hole with hot glue and sticking the axle through it is a great way to stick it on: it allows the propeller to fly off when your partner is testing the motor, giving them a few nasty cuts. And probably breaking the propeller.
