Just wondering if anyone has had a starter shaft bearing go on them in a trex 600 nitro super pro.I had mine go on me today only 10 flight's old i can only get it to free wheel it wont grab the shaft to turn the motor over.Is there a replacement bearing that will last longer than mine did.

I'm guessing you are talking about the one-way start shaft bearing that is located in the clutch?

I've never seen these for sale separately but I'm sure if you dug enough you could find them. First place I would start is bocabearings.com

However you are going to probably find for the money and time it's better to just buy a new Align clutch w/ new bearing installed.

I never had one of these fail, make sure you clean it out and well oil it. Same steps you should follow for the main shaft one-way bearing.

Well how small do i feel it wasn't the one way bearing that had slipped it was cooling fan assembly that had come loose from the motor and was free spinning on the engine shaft.

Also add a drop of oil to the one-way in the middle of the clutch. if it's dry the starter shaft will slip in there. Needs to be very clean and lightly oiled to work right. Before tightening down the engine mount into the frame run the starter on there that'll help line up the starter shaft which can also help keep the one-way from slipping.

Fan needs to be tight on the engine

The one-way bearing is an HF1216. Very common and easy to find. I have tons of them in stock.
