You've already bought from Boomtown, so, you're familiar with this parts page:

http://www.boomtownhobbies.com/Xtrem...r_p/esl005.htm

http://www.boomtownhobbies.com/Xtrem...r_p/esl006.htm

http://www.boomtownhobbies.com/Xtrem...t_p/bcx020.htm

The blades come in blue, white and yellow. The extended shaft he shows is only 5MM longer while others are 8MM or 12MM. The Xtreme site shows the 8MM and 12 MM for the Lama 4, but not for the CX-2 (?):

http://www.xtreme-production.com/xtr...id=6&Itemid=31

Miracle Mart also has mod parts, even more than Boomtown:

http://www.miracle-mart.com/store/in...roducts_id=599

http://www.miracle-mart.com/store/in...roducts_id=600

http://www.miracle-mart.com/store/in...oducts_id=1538

http://www.miracle-mart.com/store/in...oducts_id=1530

Xtreme boom bracket $2.93 http://www.miracle-mart.com/store/in...oducts_id=1461

Airy blades for Lama 4/ cx2 $8.90 http://www.helipal.com/airy-harden-blade-ax-03.html

Copy and paste the links into a spreadsheet for future reference.

Just to follow up from my previous post, and to add to KJ's list, these are the plastic Esky grips that I had mentioned. They appear to be out of stock here, but one should be able to find them elsewhere.

Not for nothing but, IMHO, you couldn't give me a set of Xtreme blades. My friend flies them on his V4 and has broken several on easy hits/bumps. I have a set of plastic Phase II blades that have been on my heli for well over a year and have survived many, many hard crashes. I just file/sand out the dings

Thanks Kodak. I have ordered the grips/blades and shaft(replacement, too). Now my impatience sets in and I will be watching the mail like a hawk.

You have three weeks to wait, so, don't sit next to the mailbox just yet.

Here is my arsenal of blades. Phase II plastic, here, you see some hooked end and a couple sets straight (clear & black). The AFC's (pictured lower left) are just plumb nuts while flying these,,,... and are tough as nails. This particular AFC blade config. is no longer used or cannot be found. The "B" blade is hooked or has curvature from the root to the tip. I think DJKhobby still sells them. Blade stiffeners (lower right) is my weapon of choice used in conjunction with my Phase II blades...a "MUST HAVE" These prevent coning of blades (helideluxe).


I hear Xtreme is getting about $6.00 a set (4 blades)...LOL.

I'm not too crazy about the Phase II skids though.

Mike.

Which version of the extended shaft did you get? I have both the 8MM and the 12MM.
