Had a little incident today with my starter and the starting shaft... I was trying to cram the shaft with the rubber cone into the starter cause it always comes out, and accidently hit the button... the edge of the cone burned the side of my hand... it hurt pretty bad... Is there not a better way to do this? I have tried lubricating the rubber thing, I've tried pushing it in there with tools, it just wont stay in!!

whats that?? Just a start shaft with a different shape? Or does that eliminate the need for the rubber cone?

Eliminates the rubber cone. Rubber cones don't work well at all. I've seen a lot of people struggle with the cone setups and the shafts work much better. You just pull everything off the starter shaft and add the one above or one like it. Don't go cheap because they won't last long. Buy once and you'll be happy you did it.

I have the kyosho start shaft. It fits in the start cone. I have not had any issues using it, but I have never used my starter to start a plank, so I think I have beaten it into submission.

Been running rubber cones for 9 years now without an issue. Will even spin my YS 91 without slipping! (Dynatron).

To avoid the injury sustained, make sure the starter is disconnected from the juice!!!

Eliminate the cone and it will be much better. If you still need a cone as well then use one like I have in my gallery it can be changed from plank to heli in a bout 5 sec. with no tools.

Get the Mavrikk shaft from HeliProz, it pops in and out, and goes for a good price!....

Has it right..

Robbe start shaft..The most reliable start shaft..Period...

Beefy one way bearing..secure clamp with quality german engineering

I've still to hear of anyone managing to break one..

If you turn the hex shaft round and you also have just a plain HEX..no more stripped out start couplings from the small contact area you get using the ball end

Yep...the Robbe shaft is the way to go. I've tried others. The Robbe has no equal (IMO).

Buy it from http://www.ronlund.com
Part number is: S1387

I have the Mavrikk, It sucks, dont waist your money on that POS.
Shaft wobbles because the there is only one set screw from one side and because the hole the shaft mounts in is drilled to big, the shaft gets pushed off center. Vibrates really bad, which concerns me because I don't want to destroy my start shafts or bearing in my birds.
Tried different shafts as well with no luck.
Now my one way is getting locked up so I can't remove the extension.
How can something so simple be such junk? I guess that goes to show the quality of Maverikk.

Wobble was my problem with all the other shafts I tried. The Robbee does not wobble...at all.

Daniel try the

Century model its really small and compact you do loose the cone and the availability to start a planks once you install it

this one is a magnum geared starter with the century one way start shaft that will start a r90 no problems

this one is the hobbico starter with the maverick from heliproz one way shaft the will also start a r90 most of the time but heavier set up

for my self i use my drill sometimes also

the Ridgid 18v but have to be carefull no to set the clutch numbe to high or the things that were not comming loose before start to loosen no matter what lock tight you use and if you hydro lock there could be engine internal damage
