Looking into buying a used Synergy N5. The tail shaft is bent. The manual states part number 615-312. Looks to be discontinued online. Is there an updated part? The new N5c shaft is 6mm while this one is 5mm.

Thanks!

Your best bet would be emailing Matt directly. He will let you know what can be done. Mattbotos.co m

Some arguments are sound and nothing more

So I guess my options are to make one or to convert to 6mm. Anyone done the conversion and/or know what parts are needed to do so?

Thanks guys

Yes. He told me that part was discontinued in 2010 and that I could fabricate one. He also said the tail has moved to a 6mm format.

I've never owned a Synergy but always thought they were cool models. I just happened to come across an great opportunity to purchase an N5 thats in pretty good shape (needs tail shaft lol).

Not sure if others still own and fly this model or if people have just moved on to the N5c.

The first N5 relased in 2009 used a belt driven tail with a 5mm tail shaft that is currently discontinued.
If you want to keep using the belt drive then you can replace the bent tail shaft with any 5mm tail shaft from another heli with the same lenght, or close to, and then grind the two flat spots on the new shaft so you can mount the 9 teeth tail pulley.
