Hi all,

I thinking of buying an aurora to replace my Trex 700. Just wondered which spare most commonly need replacing in a minor crash? (so I can buy a few spares as well).

Many thanks

I never own one but I will assume the most common parts, ie: tail boom, torque rod, main shaft, spandle shaft, frybar and paddle, and may landing gear in some cases...

boom and TT can survive some crashes, ive had a hard one where they both lived but a soft one where they did not.

main shaft bends most crashes and i always replace spindle as well.
flybar goes but some how landing gear does not break it just brakes the main frames instead

also watch your pitch arms if you crash mine have bent or twisted each time so replace accordingly.

Thats strange, I have had many crashes with mine and never broken a set of frames.

the skids on our aurora's are super skids, they bend in and brake the frames especially at the front.
on my second crash it broke the frame at the front and the rear where it punched one of the frame spancers through and broke the other fram as well.
have seen it not just on mine but 2 others as well.

Another spare to have in your tool box are the screws for the mixing arms. They're good to replace after a crash usually.

Boom, Torque Tube, boom supports.

Those are the only ones I've had to replace in a crash most commonly. Every crash is different.

As said before, most common parts, if you happen to hit the flybar hard in a crash you'd need to replace the flybar carrier and it's bearings in the yoke most likely as the high loads just take them out. Main shaft bearings as they can lead to glitches. Ball links, linkages, pitch arms.. Should be about it
