we never used the motor.

Tracy was zooming the edge of the cliff , when wind switched direction , and
handed the Tx to me. When i hit the power ; nothing happened, because
the battery was already below start-up voltage from using the lights for so
long .

I HAD to land NOW ; and with just enough energy from my forward velocity,
It crashed on top !! Not much damage ; except the motor shaft got bent .

Nobody knows what the part number is , for the motor shaft on the Radian ?

Ps: same day, a few hours earlier, at sunset .

I seem to remember something about two different shafts for two different configurations of that same motor, one that allowed mourning behind the firewall and one mounting in front of the firewall. I never had to mess with ti so I never saved the links or anything.

Billie! If you've had your Radian for a number of years, now, then that shaft in the link, isn't the correct one for your motor. The stock Radian's shaft, was held in by a circ clamp, unlike that shaft in the link, which appears to be held in by, set screws. this, is the original Radian, motor.. http://www.horizonhobby.com/480b-bl-...-shaft-pkz4716 4mm shaft.

Call HH and confirm if you can replace the shaft. If not, buy a new motor other than PKZ at half the price. Search this form for model numbers of replacement motors.

"Your saying that this IS the part i need for the shaft on my motor for the Radian ?" Wow re-read my post and tell me where I said, implied, suggested, speculated, hinted that.

Hey Bille,

I have one of those (part PKZ4418) shafts new in the original bag never opened. If you want it send me a private message with your mailing address and I will send it out. I will never use it so it is yours as a gift if you would like it.
