Hello All,

I was on my third tank in my break in process and I had a tail blade failure. The tail output shaft snapped as well. Fortunately I was in a 4ft. hover and was able to land with no visible damage to the rest of the heli. I know there has been lots of tal about the tail assembly but all I want to know is
What is the direct metal tail and slider replacement for the Radikal and where can I get it?
Also should I replace the bearings as well since what is left of the shaft is warped?
Is there anything else I should consider replacing for safety?

Thanks for your help!

There's at least one place I know of in Florida that should be able to sell you the Century aluminum parts however it's impossible to post or PM the name of the shop because RR replaces it with XXX whenever you type it in, apparently some disagreement between the shop owner and RR. Said shop advertises on the Heli Fr*** forum if that's any help to you.

That said, a Trex 600 N tail hub assembly and slider are bolt on replacements if those parts are easier for you to get and have leading edge control vs. the original trailing edge control on the Radikal.
