09-15-2008, 06:08 PM
Im considering to go for esmart,
Seems like a good stable heli,i did some math
and i can afford one rather than upgrade the belt.
No store in my country has ever imported one thow.
If i go for it can i use spares from other models
available here like the trex?

I was disappointed and kinda pissed off at BPhobbies recently, I ordered a semi-metal kit and they sent me a plastic kit, they simply wrote new stock numbers on it like that was magically gonna change it, most people would never know the difference, but since I have a semi-metal kit I knew right away. They were EXTREMELY RUDE on the phone and un-interested in solving the problem in a timely fashion. So I got screwed. Really have no interest in dealing with them again, but the bad part is they are the only ones that sell the correct main shafts. I'll prob put in one last order for a crap load of spares that other places don't have and never deal with them again.

I think helidirect has a good selection of spares. I also got the screwed up version of the main shaft but I chose to use it. A friend of mine who makes knives heat treated them for me so it's a bit stronger than normal shafts and the turned down part will not be a weak spot.

spare parts wise, im not sure what others are compatible. the trex, nothing is crossed over. even link ends are different. for spare parts the only problem im having thus far is from the main gear and a sloppy swash. other than that i dont see any, yet.
trial and error and a healthy wallet will see if other parts fit. im just not down for throwing money away on parts that wont work!
u.s. distributors- helidirect and bphobbies. else where... china.
