Default Align 700 or other size main shaft sleeve !!

Hey I got question here it maybe weird but I run through problem while I am building DIY helicopter and thinking of fitting th 700 shaft 12m inside the trex 600 hub ( one way bearing only) without its sleeve!
Since I am not using the autorotation gear!!

And then secured from the bottom with the same hole and from the top of the oneway bearing I put 12 mm washer so that can set nice between the oneway bearing And the bearing block!!

So the question : why Align design the shaft to go inside another shaft!!!

To much right?

I know somebody will say it's just to keep the oneway bearing from getting dirty !! I don't believe that will cause problem to electric birds!

Thank you Oz

I would venture to guess that the sleeve is hardened and polished so the one way bearing can live a long life , and the main shaft is not manufactured to the same hardness level.

I think that most Align RC hardening goes for 50 HRC and that is not very hard to allow flex but I used to hardening my Own shafts to 58HRC and that give them more rigidity and keep small flex,,

And the Align shaft is also Chrome Plated so that can give it resistant against wear or rust! So to use the shaft itself will be much better for the life of the bearing!

Now some may say it can slip so nice its chrome plated! But I did test and found the tourqe of the spin is same as the sleeve!!

So still question why the Align using it!
