Default EP8 main gear

Hi,

Does anyone out there still fly the QWW models? I need to find the main gear for the EP8 but have no idea where they are still being sold.

He is looking for Quick World Wide parts, that shop has/had Quick Japan parts, two totally different brand names and machines.

OP, the shop is closed, the web site is gone, and the owner died about a year ago. Jon was trying to clear out inventory from the owner's farm, but that was also about a year ago. Unless Jon see's your post and IM's you (I would not hold your breath) you are out of luck. Time to look for a new kit to build.

Lot of parts for both brands are inter changeable. Def worth a shot if he has the old part to compare.

The only problem is that both brands have gone out of business.

in fact, I found a compatible main gear from Gaui X4 or X5. The next problem is that the center hub are of different size though. so, I have to make the center hub myself. I think it will work but have to wait until I have access to the necessary tools.

In fact, I have been flying Align clones and Gaui. So easy to get parts for them. But I still have the QWW model and enough parts to build 3 helis except for the main gear. That's why I am keen to find it and continue to fly the QWW. I enjoy flying different models and just building them. If I can't find the exact parts, I'll mix and match parts from other brands. The main gear is probably the most difficult part to mix and match.

I emailed them. They don't have the main gear anymore. They do have a complete set that they want to sell to me though
