Does anyone know what the longest length Trex 600 main shaft that is available? I need to find a longer one than what comes in 600 electric (HK clone) for a scale application. I need to find a long one that has the reduced diameter shaft, the long shaft that came with my scale fuse has a straight shaft and won't work.

Thanks

I think you're looking at an H60159 main shaft, 201 mm, as being the longest stock main rotor shaft out there.

Perhaps someone over in the scale area may have a lead on what you're looking for.

Perhaps PM "Copter Doctor" here on RR. He's got plenty of scale helis under his belt and does magnificent work.

RC Aerodyne lists a "longer" mainshaft for their 800 size UH-1, for an Align 600 ESP (http://www.scaleflying.com/Longer-M...ESP_p_2828.html), but they don't say what "long" is, it's $50, and they are out of stock. Perhaps you should contact them and see what they might be able to do.

Dave, I contacted RC Aerodyne and they did have that main shaft in stock and it does have the reduced diameter on the bottom of the main shaft and is just what is needed. Hated to spend that much but guess they had to talk Smartmodel into doing a run of them. Now I can proceed with the project. Building an AH-1 Cobra. My all time favorite helicopter, AH-1W then the AH-1S in order of preference. Thanks for your help, much appreciated.
