Substitute main shaft for Blade 400
I did a search and posted in the apparently posthumous blade 400 thread to no avail. My question is, has anyone found a substitute for the discontinued blade 400 main shaft. It's the only part I can't find and I'd hate to toss a perfectly good trainer away. I have been out of the hobby for about 12 years or more (used to be a regular here) and it's alot like being brand new. If I'm gonna tear something up, I'd prefer it was the blade rather than the tRex. Thank you and Merry Christmas!

I believe the mainshaft from the 450 3D will work. The 450 X, which is flaybarless, uses a shorter shaft. A possibility might be the Align 450 SE shaft. The shaft diameter and length is about right, I'm just not sure about the main gear and head mounting bolt holes being in the right place.Gerry Cullan,

Lot's of interchangeable parts listed here. Main shaft is not listed, not sure why, could be length. Main bearings and washout base are listed so it's 5mm diameter. They are cheap on EBay,(10 bucks for 2) so worth a try.

I guess I should be glad I have a good stockpile of these.
