OK so I traded my raptor 50 for a rex 600e it only needed an RX,gyro.
I get it all together , go outside to spool it up, Quite impressive!!, well except for a very slight wobble!! seemed to go away at higher rpm. I brought it back in to change the main shaft(it came w/2 new ones) After comparing I find that the new ones, labeled
600esp #H60177t are shorter than what came out!! I also noticed a hint of nitro smell while running it up!! Might be the previous owner, he said he was all nitro except this one he traded me, or could this be a nitro converted to elec?? I guess I really need to know what shaft to order? Advice/guidance appreciated!! Thanks, Walt

After further Internet research it appears that a 600EP and a 600N share the same main shaft but the 600ESP is different!! can any one confirm?? if so I have 2 esp main shafts I'll trade for the ep ones!!

Confirmed...
The 600ESP only has two bearing blocks supporting the main shaft. As such the shaft is correspondingly shorter than the 600E or 600N versions.

600 ESP lacks the 3rd bearing block, hence, its shafts are shorter than all the other 600 birds. If yours has three bearing blocks, you need the non ESP shafts.
