Anyone have a spare set of axles they would sell?

Mine are shot and I can't find any that fit. The Dubros (5/32) are huge and heavy and I don't want to drill out the landing gear.

Thanks,

Mike

I think 3DHS posted on FB that they have a bunch of spare parts "on the water".

I would send you some if I could.

Hot glue is good, I also use canopy glue (Pacer formula 560). No digging needed, and holds firmly, but can be disassembled easily.

Winter Sunset flight, 2nd of two. Was 40F late afternoon. Not bad for mid-late January! First time out with the 57 SC in awhile.

Watch and listen on the first KE Slider pass.... Seems I'm missing some covering and balsa on the corner.... Also got it home and out fell one of the two prop adapter nuts I use (double nutted). Wondered what the strange new sound was on the first flight. Vibrated loose I guess, seen this before. That's why I double nut on this one.

with the new 61 coming out, I wonder if the existing stock of the 57's will go on sale. I just may stock up on a couple of them; then fly them like they are stolen.

I would bet that it is going to be a while before the 61's are available...
