They have the blue one in stock, the white one is out. I can sell you one if you're sure it is correct. Do you need a blue/white/silver one? Do you have a pic. of the damaged one?..If not, I'll post up a pic. of what I have.

Well, I maidened it today. First flight was mostly trimming her and getting a feel for it. Landing was a bit sketchy, came in slightly hard. Second flight I started putting her through the paces. Gotta love that blender/KE spin growl. On landing I came up a little short of my runway, it's very short about 50 feet so I gotta use it all, wheel pant caught on a group of small rocks and tipped it over. The air frame looks ok from what I can see, but I haven't taken the cowl off yet to really get a look at the motor box.

However, I bent the motor shaft. Where can I get another for the Omega 130g motor?

Are you sure you bent the motor shaft? I had a similar incident in a different plane with an Omega 130, and the prop adapter was bent but the motor shaft was fine.

I would think the plane's front end would self destruct before the shaft would bend! I've knocked my buck huck over plenty of times, motors fine, couple of broken props is all. I've found these planes to be way more solid than I ever expected.

I have what ever version that did not come with SFG's and flat tail surfaces, When i checked the 3DHS parts it did not look like a match. I will take a pic of the plane and if you can help cool, if not i will pick up one from them. Thanks for your time.

i snapped the motor shaft (not the prop adapter) in mid air on a 103 gram omega motor, it was funny seeing the can/prop shoot off, lol.

Yea, that happened during a blender on mine. Motor was about 1.5 year old at that point. I replaced the shaft and flew it for another 6 months til the backplate of the motor cracked and the can started rubbing.

Another fun morning with the extra 300 SHP. Trying to teach myself rollers, but got bored and frustrated at my bad timing. So I decided to bring it low (eye level) and practice my upright harrier. Then I thought it would be a good idea to bring it as close as I possibly could to myself.*

So it comes closer, and closer, and closer. About 3 metres away I think to myself, 'it's time to turn it around'. I put in some rudder... in the wrong direction! The bird heads STRAIGHT for me. With no time to turn it around I RUN clutching my controller. The bird sails through the area I occupied a second ago and I have a heavy harrier landing -> flip over.

The peanut gallery was very amused!

No damage to the extra, I threw her back in the air after checking that the motor mount hadn't cracked. This is really one tough bird.



*Note: I'd never dream of doing this if there were people around me. I was alone at the flight line today, hence this seemed like a good idea .
