EDF55 shaft size?

Will a motor with a 2.3mm shaft work with the EDF55 or does it have to have a 2mm shaft motor?

Thanks,
Steve

As far as I know GWS only makes 2mm adapter and recently some 3 mm adapter for their EDF55/64.

You might want to either turn down your motor shaft diameter or look for after market parts.

Hi Steve,

Shschon is correct, the old version shaft adapter on EDF55/64 was 2mm one as the motors used were all with 2mm shaft, while the current version shaft adapter is in 3mm as the brushless motors used on them are with shaft in 3mm, ie GWBLM005AZ or GWBLM005Z.

What is the part# for the 3mm shaft adapter and does anyone in the USA have this part in stock?

Hi Sammy,

The part number of 3mm adapter for EDF55&64 is GWADP003C. Just check out this link for all EDF parts, http://www.gwsus.com/english/product.../edf_parts.htm Would you visit www.caliberhobby.com if you could not find it out locally.
