    I am assuming that the hardware stays in place and you a just loosing the prop? I had this issue with another set up and it was caused by a loose O ring. What i did was go to the auto parts store and find a O ring that was thicker and just a hair smaller diameter. It was a pain to put it on but the prop did not come off again. I believe what happens is the thrust from the prop is strong enough to stretch the O ring causing it to come off when it is spun up.
    hope this helps, let me know if it is something different coming off.
    I assume you are installing the prop like so:

    Yes that is the problem I was having. I got some different o rings. As you said a little thicker. I also put two on, it is staying on just fine now. Thank you.

    So I am thinking the battery on the side is not a great thing. The plane definitely will drop the wing to that side and it does. Is there any real downside to cutting a slot to in the vertical fuse to place the battery evenly in the middle?

    No I have seen it done before. On this plane I would be cautious though just because of how thin the foam is.

    Thats a great idea. If the o rings wear out or I run out I will try this next.
