The torque tube drive tips that insert into the tailrotor case and front gear case on trex 600s....is there a way to get them without having to buy the whole torque tube?

Is it possible to buy them seperately?

We have to cut the tubes to length anyway,
and cf rod is pretty cheap to buy, so why not just buy the tips by themselves...and buy our own rods.

The 3-Ders (Pod and BOOOOM) will be looking for 5 times the going price to fund the repair of their recently wrecked heli. maybe...

But thats a thought!!! never hurts to ask...

If I remember correctly, these will fit as far as the splines go, but the od of the part that inserts into the tube is slightly larger than the id of the stock Align tube. If you're making your own from CF or arrow shafts, etc., these may work. Hope this helps...

I'll go visit the local heli site and see what turns up.

But it would be nice to round off some heli order.

I don't see that I would be going through alot of them.
