SH 0255MG are actually a bit cheaper than HS-65MG in the UK.

I did not see shafts for this motor on TH site , so ordered another motor

I'm willing to bet any 4 mm shaft would work. just as long as it's the same length and is a nice tight press fit should be good. trim it down if it's too long

check out heads up RC they have great information on everything they sell to find a motor with a 4 millimeter shaft and see if they sell spares

Tom,

Before you go any farther - email or call Brad at Twisted and ask him if a spare is available.

He's taken care of me numerous times (and everytime I asked) even though something was not for sale on the site.

He said he didn't have but would look around if not will see if Jeff at headsuprc
has any
bummed me out , slight eye movement towards low in the sky sun and back to Sbach - temp blinded . My 3D friend flew it earlier and said " hard to tell which is up and down " Maybe some wide black strips on bottom would help ? We fly on nice grass field and Sbach hit the ground where the high grass around the periminter is located . I ordered another motor in the meantime from Brad . I do have his 78 Gm motor on hand .

Glad I still have adequate supply of that glue from TH, as it will take a good bit :-) of patching nose section .

Same weight as mine, it hasn't proved to be an issue. I have a 106gm AXI motor.

Yes! The weight of 24 oz was with a 78g motor. I would not be bummed by your Sbach's 27oz wieght. I have found that they fly as good at the higher wieght than at the 24oz mark.

I fly mine normally with 1800mah bats but will strap a 2200 on when the 1800's are charging. I find no negatives to the extra wieght. Plus, I have added so much Welders () that mine is probably at 27 oz or above even with my lighter battery in it. And still flys great.

Yes. I can verify that he has added much welders. That plane has been abused but Shawn we need to get a video for the Twisted guys on here because your flying has really stepped up since you have gotten the SBach. Really good flying. Lets fly tomorrow.

Nice! I am running a 78g with a 11 x 5.5 te with a 2200 and it does not have that snap to instantly pull up. Looks like time for a up-grade
