Hey guys hopping someone can help. I some how bent the main shaft on my ECO 8 heli and it seems all parts suppliers are gone! Does anyone know where I can get parts from? I know it's old and dated, but I won't ever sell this thing! Thanks.

Thanks guys. There would happen to be a state side distributor that I'm missing? I've tried Helihobby and Hobby Lobby, no luck. CME Hobbies doesn't seem to carry Ikarus any more and FX Aeromodles site doesn't work. Of course if any one of YOU have a spare shaft, hint, hint.

Eco 8

I have a brand new Eco 8 kit. It is partially assembled but all there and never used. The canopy is alittle tweaked but not bad (glued crooked) I'd let you have it for $100 shipped and I'll eat the PP fees

with a hammer and patience you can bent back the main shaft.

Check in a electric drill your work and hit it again until it runs ok.

Run the shaft on a flat surface to know the high spot and hit the spot with a hammer.It takes several tries until you get to know how much force is enough.

Also run the shaft in the drill and mark it all with a permanent marker. The bent part will show as more it paints more.

When the shaft has several bents is very hard to fix it ans is time for a new shaft.

That sounds crazy but actually works. If you have a drill press, you can chuck up the shaft with the bent area just outside of the chuck and spin it slowly. Watch for the high side, like Juan said. Tap gently with a small hammer, then spin it again. Repeat until the shaft has minimum wobble.

6mm silver steel rod works. Just cut it to length, copy and drill where the holes are. I've made several. Many bearings shops supply it.

ECO 8 parts

Wow! Thanks for all the support guys. A great help indeed. I'll try to hammer it back first, if that doesn't cut it I'll. Try something else.

Going to http://www.ikarus-modellbau.re is not a viable option, though the part is in stock and only cost around $12, it would cost me $68 in shipping and handling! Yikes!
