Default Trex 500 Replace Tail Shaft

Hey guys check out my first heli repair video.
This is on my FB 500 with belted tail. (I know old school right but it's what I've got for now)
I'm going to be doing videos more aimed toward beginners or folks who need a little help getting more comfortable with working on their helis.
Also I plan to do my first full kit build on video to help with others doing their first kit build.
Let me know what you think.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I'm at work and can't seem to find the canopy online.

When I get home I'll look for the part number and try to find it.

I'll let you know what I find.

Hi there,

This canopy came in the old 500E kit, http://www.horizonhobby.com/product/...bo-agnkx017014

Part # for canopy is HC5070, may be able to find some old stock but otherwise most likely discontinued.

Nice video as well.

Wow I was way off base there.
Thanks for the correction, post edited.

Good memory on that!

That's a great question, what would you like to see?
I've been wanting to buy a new bird soon and do some build vids but there is definitely nothing wrong with keeping these going at the same time.

I had been thinking about doing a blade tracking video next.
So many guys are flying FBL nowadays I wonder if there is even an interest in FB repair videos.

Let me know what you guys think.
