Raven SE start shaft
I had a strange problem yesterday. Never in all the century helis I have ever owned have I had the pin come out of the start shaft. My question is, I have several old hawk start shafts but the bottem is a different shape. The hawk shafts have round balls with the pins through them, while the newer ones ie Raven are cylinder shaped with flat bottoms. Can I use one of these old shafts? Or should I just convert it to the new NX style and forget about the shaft? If I convert it to the NX version does that take a longer start adapter to reach it, and is it a different size?

Yes, you can use the older shafts. I would suggest that you just change it over to the new NX start fan and adaptor. Much easier and less hassle without that spring loaded start shaft.Ray Fernandez - GUAM

The reason the current (Hawks and Ravens) use the sahft with the flat bottom is because it has an allen serew that crews in the bottom to lock in the pin. Obviously your allen screw came out or came loose.

Look at the bootom of it and you will see what I mean.

Thanks guys. I was able to remove the pin from one of the old start shafts I had and it will do until the nx part arrives.

Wow. Interesting. My fan cracked in half where the horizontal pin engages a few weeks ago, lovely plastic. I've never seen that either.Wayne - Fly it like you stole it! You're in good hands with Runryder!
