That's how I used to do it. I switched to the aluminum ends too for a few I made.

So no pin, just friction fit the ends on? What a stupidly simple way to deal with it. I never liked the idea of the fuel tubing in the middle of the shaft.

Yeah.. Never had a hold problem. Crashed a lot. Seemed to work well.

Here it is flying.
180cfx freezing cold north wind flying. Ugh. Forward flight practice and learning. (4 min 45 sec)

This is something I'd like to try on my 450's. I'm so tired of stripped gears.

You guys think it would work?



Thanks

Dave

Highly doubt that anything could easily be made to handle the torque of a 450 size. Belt conversion would be the way to go. Economical 450 size copters with belt drives are the Oxy4, TREX470LP/LM.

Yeah. That's a bit of torque when you start getting larger.
