450X Extended boom ??

Hi Guys
I have been flying my 450X with the lynx extended boom and tail

I have found that lynx have discontinued these products, SO

Was look around the net and found Tarot have a 480 boom and belts , but the boom size is about 12mm or so and the 450x is about 12.5mm or 12.75mm ( not 100% on these measurements)

Does anybody know or have they tried these booms on the 450x ??

I have really been enjoying the flights with the longer boom

Any help would be great

Watho

The 450X is a 14mm boom. Like the mini protos. The Align however is 12mm.

I wouldn't try the Align compatible booms. However, you may be able to cut your own if you could find some aluminium alloy 14mm tube. I think the mini protos boom is keyed differently at the ends and may not be the length you need, so if it's not too short, you may be able to use it but some modding necessary I would guess.

You may be also able to source your own belt. I have never ordered a custom belt however, so I am not exactly sure whom you approach

Wait now, if you tell me how long the 450X lynx extended boom is, I might be able to tell you if the mini stretch boom is long enough.

Thanks Spy
I was thinking of making my own boom ,but the belt was the main problem ??
Maybe I could use the tarot belt and make the boom to fit ??
Do you think that would be fessable

Thanks again Watho

Oh, I see, sourcing the belt is the problem.

I don't know the specifications of the tooth spacing. To be honest with you, I'm not even sure what units are used, as I just essentially fly my helis with few if any mods, but I am led to believe if you know the specs of the belt, you can just go online to a belt supplier, much like a bearing supplier and order what you need.

Who you go to within AU or how you measure your belt, unfortunately I don't know.

How about post this in HF general forum? Some guy there's bound to know at least how to specify what you need - I'm guessing if Atomic Skull sees this here or in HF, he'd be one to ask as well.

You have been a great help
Didn't even think about the tooth spacing LOL

It's just a shame lynx discontinued the extended stuff for the 450x as I just got into it

Still trying to work my way through the Kbar to get it up and flying again

thanks again for your help

One other thing I recalled that may help. The guy Luca who runs Lynx, he's on HF, allegedly he answers questions very quickly. I can't remember his login, but I'm sure you can find him on the HF blade forums ie 130X. He might be able to tell you the specs of the belt and maybe even from whom to order from.
