Quoting myself - the height of foolishness.
I can only find two vendors who stock parts for the 200SD5. Both are out of stock for the 200SD5 feathering shaft which is about 2.5 mm shorter than the 200SD3 feathering shaft. Since I have six of the 200SD3 shafts, I cut one off today. What remains is four threads inside the shaft. I'm not real comfortable with this and it is a lot of work doing a precision cut but I may get desperate before WOW and WalkeraHelicopterSupply restock and cut off the other four.
