HelicopterHIROBOOther › Sceadu - shaft tail drive upgrade

Hi

Ive recently bought some secondhand Sceadu upgrade parts
which included shaft tail drive set 0412-162:

anyone using it?
What difference does it make compared to the existing belt drive?

I assume that a crash requiring a
new boom (lets just say i like to keep a spare handy)
will also need the 0412 173 shaft replacing,
my lhs stocks the complete set but not the shaft,
what do they cost?

Cheers David

The shafts come in two types. One is Carbon, the other is Alloy. The carbon is the most expensive. The alloy is a close second. If you want up to date prices i suggest speaking to Ben at Bekra R/C for advise.

I fly an Eagle Freya EX with with the carbon tube. It's as smooth as you can get on any model in the market. However, my stock plastic Freya has the tail belt. The tail belt is so good I just would not consider upgrading it. Furthermore, if my tube in my EX got bent, I would change to the belt setup. Honestly the stock belt and tail gearbox assembly is fantastic.

MJG thanks for the reply

So the tail drive is to improve smoothness?

I cant see its worth the bother as i dont have any problems with my Sceadu and as the upgrade costs UK£140 maybe why not many people have got one?

Has anybody got this upgrade on a sceadu????

I got some info on the repalcement drive pipe:
Hirobo part list 0412-173, 7500yen = $68 aprox

Quite exspensive for a 5mm tube (aluminium I think) that I would compare to a radio ariel, but it does include the hubs on the ends,
The original hubs I have are still ok and can re-use
so im going to try and replace the tube myself,
the part list says its length = 650.5mm
but does this include the hubs?

Any help appreciated.

you might want to poke around and
see if you can contact suppliers of
medical stainless steel tubing in
appropriate lengths.

I know smallparts.com has sections of
tubing that are the right size.

Yes, the belts are great and the tubes
wickedly overpriced.

i have had mine upgraded for sometime my freyas also better hang time in an auto .smooth of course the down side is the replacement when you crash but mrc has just the replacement shafts with no bearings that you can install with no problem very cheap very easy to install once you go shaft you will never want to go back to belt

thanks jeff

wow replies!

Z- thanks, thats a great site

Baldeagle- looked on MRC web site but couldn't find any parts listed, do you have to email them for part prices?? ......ANYONE?

jento - i was thinking of buying in bulk
............well at least 1 spare if im going to go to the trouble of installing the upgrade.

main blades - I couldn't find 5mm either?.

Ive just bought the dttss gears so would be a good opportunity to fit the tail drive also - ready to learn Autos....get that buddy lead out Daz

Robbe Tubes
I don't have my Futura any more, but I think the Robbe tube might be what your looking for. They're only about $10. You could just cut them to the proper length if they're 5mm OD. The part number is S4753. Maybe we can get a Robbe flier to chime in and give us more info..

I'm 99% sure the robbe tt is 7mm OD

pls note that mcmaster.com does show
5mm OD tubing in 3 different ID's
(4.0, 4.2 and 4.5). All of it is 316
stainless and $18 per 1m section.

right.

I had looked at the ball bearing used
on the support but forgot about the
little sleeve which adds an extra mm.

it's a 7mm ball bearing and the sleeve
is 1mm.

so make that only 95% sure

David,

Does the shaft drive kit (0412 -162) for the Sceadu come complete for conversion of the belt drive to a shaft drive? I haven't seen the drive kit. I was wondering if the tail rotor gear box is plastic or metal?

Ken
