I think that the thrust bearings and auto rotation hub are standard on the US kits.

thanks,

just checked the Mikado's site - http://www.mikado-heli.de/en/logo10/index.htm apparently, the autorotation hub is a standard, but the thrust bearing is provided, like you said, in the American kit only.

what is a "thrust bearing" and how important is it ?

Thrust bearings resist the force excerted by the blades as they try to pull out when rotating at high speeds. Using normal blades at anything above 1700 - 1800 rpm there could be a chance of sheding a blade in a high G manouver

thanks for the explanation,

I guess I'll get these thrust bearings once I move into higher RPM flights.
