Reviving a 250 (or two)
« on: January 08, 2017, 13:15:50 PM »
OK, so after a spell spending more attention on Race Quads, I want to update my Helicopters. Have a couple of Budget 250 TRex clones, and would like to convert from FB to FBL. (Using anything that will fit that is in keeping with the budget price!)

And that's where I'm stuck, as in the UK the 250 class in TRex style seems to have all but disappeared, parts being either OOS, no longer made, or phenomenally and prohibitably expensive in the case of TRex DFC.

I have the FBL electronics, so all I need is the head and if DFC poss a shorter shaft. Obviously best if UK sourced, but any ideas please?

Hi, I have successfully re-drilled the shaft on 450 size, to make shorter shafts. The hole at the other end can be used to lock the shaft to allow the new hole to be central and vertical (while drilling).
Perhaps one way to go would be to use a 450 shaft, then use a 450 FBL head, new bearings and drill out the main gear and tail gear.
