Help!
Art-Tech EC135 Extra Large Co-ax

Does anyone have a link to a spares supplier for this heli? I need to source a new inner shaft as mine has a slight bend in it. Or are parts compatible with any other heli's such as Walkera.
Any help much appreciated

Art tech made their own helis, in their own sizes. Nothing is compatible with other brands. However, xheli and Banana Hobby both sold that heli a few years ago and probably still have parts. Can't help with anything closer, though.

Hi,I have two Artech md500 helis and also have trouble locating parts.I have straightened bent shafts though using a rubber mallet on a flat surface such as a thick piece of ply.

Many thanks for the advice and links. Unfortunately, the Banana hobby site is not available to me at present (down for maintainence)? The part I need is $8.76 but the shipping is $20..!!

Could really do with finding a UK supplier or more cost effective shipping

Art-Tech has very little presence outside of China and that model was discontinued several years ago. All of the brands sold in the UK are rebadged versions of something else. Your best bet for finding something local is to check popular UK sites and see if they have something that looks familiar. Art-tech sells rebranded planes all over the place.

Speaking from experience, don't buy anything from Banana Hobby. My heli had a mind of its own and crashed and burned (actually did burn) before I could even fly it. They don't stand behind their product and their tech support sucks.

I'm not a fan of Banana Hobby, but sometimes they are the only place to find old parts because their Blitzworks stuff is all rebrands. Any of the online stores that sells rebrands is a good source for old parts, because other people won't know to look there.... well, until now!
