Thank-you.

I’ve got a flippi V8 and just on a whim decided to save myself some time for tearing it down.

In step 10, those screws hold the motor. The fan blades just slide on and off.

This is for the Flippi v6, but the is the same for the v8. The only difference it’s that there are 2 more screws in step 4 for the turning mechanism.
