I got an Outrage 550 airframe a while back and it is in
pristine condition and I got it pretty cheap.
But now I am a little worried about the availability of spares.
So before I start fitting a motor and ESC and servos etc. I'm thinking,
if it is likely to be difficult to get spares then maybe I am
better off selling it on now, perhaps to a current 550 owner, and getting something where I won't have such difficulties.
I love the look of it and would be happy to build it and fly it
if it's not going to be grounded when something wears out or I have a little 'dumb thumb' moment.
So what's the current story on parts for the 550?
What, if any, are compatible with the Fusion?
The rotorhead looks the same as some of the other models so
the feathering shaft shouldn't be a problem (and worst-case
I can always fit a Compass head on there or something).
What I would be concerned about would be the main gear, boom and
tail belt / pulleys etc, main rotor shaft, stuff like that.
