Shaft snapped on KA22-20L Brushless Motor

I was setting up a new transmittter with a plane with a prop installed and as you may have guessed, reversed the throttle and the plane shot across the garage like a bolt of lightining. Very impressive up until it his the wall and the shaft snapped like a twig right at the clip slot.

Do you sell replacement shafts for this powerful motor? Do they have the clips?

Thanks

Dave

Not for about 10 days. But I can take the spare shaft from one I have in stock if that will help you now. I do want to mention that the motor already comes with a spare shaft in the box.

I am just checking back. Do you have an ETA for the shafts? I noticed that the shafts for the motor you sell has a slightly smaller diameter shaft than other motors that I have replacement shafts that are the same nominal diameter. This is why some of my other "same" shafts do not fit this motor.

Can you tell me what brand of motor shafts may likely fit the motors that you sell? I have Suppo's mostly and they seem like a different nominal diameter.

The shaft is a 1/8" shaft. I am still waiting for them to arrive. All I can offer at the moment is to take the extra shaft from the one motor I have in stock and send it to you as the shafts are part of a bigger order and the factory is going to ship my whole order together which will not be for about 5 days yet. The issue you will have with a different motors shaft is that the groove for the retaining ring will not be in the same location.
