Most places that carry Radix have them in stock now.

rcdumbthumbs has them

as does

most places have them but you may have to dig a bit as they are still an odd sized blade.

The weather today is a high of ZERO with a low of -8. I feel like an eskimo

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Well I ordered a scorpion motor and 60 amp Esc with 2 outrage 4s packs 350 blades 6100e rx 285 mg servos 3500 tail and will reuse Spartan for gyro so hopefully everything will arrive soon and can break the cold weather blues with some building if anyone can think of anything else please chime in

Also I notice that a hardened main mast is offered is this necessary? Problems with stock mast?

I have found that the regular main shafts tend to bend a lot in a crash. So much so, its difficult to remove the swash and washout assy. I no longer use them and have switched to hardened shafts, Ill let you know how they hold up... hopefully not soon

Hi hockeyrules99,

That's the same setup I'm using except for the gyro and I just love it.

I used the stock main shaft for quite a while and it was just fine. It was a little tighter fit than the hardened shaft but just a very little sanding with 1500 (wet or dry) sandpaper on the upper half (where the swash and mixer slide) made it perfect. Eventually, I changed to the hardened shafts and I really like them. Their quite tuff and don't seem to flex as much during hard 3D. It's a real pleasure having a Rave with shafts that actually fit the bearings properly. On other models, I used to use green locktite on all shafts to bearings because of a loose fit that just seemed to keep getting looser.

I haven't checked to see which main shaft bends the easiest during a crash yet, and hopefully I never will, Ha, Ha....

I know this a silly question but those of you who have flown a 500 and the rave would they be similar in as far as class/size goes I sold my 500 to fund my rave and I'm kinda having sellers remorse
