You might try asking in the micro heli forum. It goes on a shaft, somewhere.
Could be main shaft, tail shaft, motor shaft, etc.

Well, I guess its a kit by traditional definition, but I found it to be more of an ARF, with only major components needing final assembly. I admit it's not as easy as a RTF heli what with having to make the final adjustments and all, but I've never had an RTF that I didn't have to adjust to get the darned thing to fly correctly!

I can't comment on the models you listed as I have no experience with them, but I will say that bigger definitely flies better. I'm going up to a 500 after the first of the year.

The 4#3B has exactly the same circlips. They always used to ping off, and we used washers which were found inside the old brushed motors instead. I'm not sure what folk are using nowadays, but I'll bet someone has found something that fits - I would check the CB100 threads in the micro-heli forum.

yes i would be willing to bet HD, actually Lowes if you have one nearby has a better choice in that type of hardware.

i stopped at hobbytown usa and bought the smallest ones they had in a assortment pack ,and they werent small enough...lol

the washer is a good idea ,i see these flying off alot as i only have about a dozen or so flights in .

did you double stack the washers?just use enough to fill the void?

the heads a little sloppy without the circlips .
