On my JR Ergo, I had to cut about 1/4 inch off the crankshaft threads on my Hyper 50. I went to install the fan on my EVO 50 tonight and what do ya know, no darn threads left for the nut!!!

There goes money that I WAS going to put towards a nice set of CF main blades!!!

thats what you get for buying a suckass Junk Radio helicopter that requires hacking an engine
to fit.

I'll bet that JR engineer got a bonus

yea, sorry, having to buy a new crank must
su*k.

You will enjoy the Evo very much.

Continue on w/ assembly anyway while you
wait for the crank. There isn't really much
dependency.

Can't wait to fly it, all the gearing in it is soooo smooth compared to what I am used to flying, also a lot lighter!

Give JR a break!, the ergo is a old machine. Im not sure of it, but they must have changed the design on there newer machines ( venture's & voyagers ) so that the crankshaft doesnt have to be cut.

I have nothing against JR, I would buy a CS or Vibe anyday if I had the funds, I was just expressing my feelings towards the crankshaft having to be cut. Which it does look like JR changed the design so that it is not necessary anymore.

Sorry I didnt want what i said to come across as if i was having a moan. I wasnt, sorry. Its just that the Ergo is an old machine, it cant really be compared to an Evo, you have to compare the JR Voyager or the new Airskipper to the Evo, its a better comparison.

I feel your anger though, having to cut the crankshaft is just not right.

Ps - You could bet on it if I had the funds I would also have a vigor cs or vibe too, beautifully made machines.
