Robbe friends,

I'm looking for New In Box ( NIB ) Robbe Nova Cuatro S3212, Robbe Future Nova S3206 Mechanics and also Robbe S2877 fuselage.

I know it's a long shot, but from time to time I'm sure somebody is clearing out their basements.. Only interested in NIB, thank you.

Sorry but no scale stuff. Last one was the 300C back in the late 80's.

Just received a NIB Robbe Cuatro from Tim. I'm very, very grateful for having been able to get this. Many thanks Tim, it's in good hands.

Cheers,

Question for the group....
I've dusted off my Milli, SE, Nova and Nova gasser after about 10 years away from the hobby. Realizing now how things have changed and part availability is nil. About the only commonly damaged part I probably could not duplicate somehow is the 4615 tail drive crown gear. We are all in the same boat... does anyone know of an alternate part or work around?

I’m not sure if I’ve been lucky but I’ve never stripped the crown gear. I was told when I first started building Robbes to push down hard on the PTO when tightening and the meshing of the gears will sort itself out within the first couple of minutes on your first flight. Been through a few sets of tail blades but crown gear always survives.

Over a couple of years I managed to find a few of these on obscure online shops in Europe, and also occasionally on Ebay (European sites). I would do a search for certain items, maybe every 3-5 months and got a few of the more "hard to get" items this way.
Unfortunately I can provide any alternatives to a work around..

Seems to be the general consensus.

Agreed, and done from when I started assembling and flying Robbe. Still, any mishap that results in tail blades contacting the ground results in failed crown gear teeth... at least that's been my experience.

The realization that a hard landing or crash will esentially scrap a heli is kinda hard to take. Going to be reluctant to fly again...

Probably why most guys that could, have hoarded up on essential parts, such as the 4615. I completely agree, it's no fun going flying with these machines if you have to worry about an unpredictable hard landing.

Yeager,
"No shipping to United States"... I see that all the time in German and UK ebay listings. If the buyer is willing to pay the shipping charges why are they not willing to ship overseas?
