outer shaft alternative for BCX2/3 & LamaV3/4

ok, just because the situation brings up the necessity ...
a few more words about the outer shafts for the BCX/Lama3/4 class helis ...

There are several companies I know of the make aftermarket outer shafts ... RCRiveSud, Xtreme, SKYTEC ... and then you can also use this outer shaft if you look beyond the box ...

It is almost as long as the extended outer shafts are and has much stronger walls than stock ... is reasonably cheap and can be combined with the Xtreme gear, the Skytec gear ... or the aluminum outer gear from post 5 ...

the catch is, that as it is a shaft with predrilled guide holes, to use it you need a lower rotor head that does NOT need guide holes ... and here the only option I know are the lower heads for BCX or Lama from Skytec ....

here are some pics of the shaft compared to one from an Xtreme gear B/shaft combo ...
