Well my first flight was barely one and I'm now in need of a motor shaft. The problem is, I have no idea what kind/size of brushless motor I have. Here is a link to the kit that I have: http://cgi.ebay.com/BRAND-NEW-2009-CESSNA-206T-6CH-RC-AIRPLANE-BRUSHLESS_W0QQitemZ190293664412QQcmdZViewItemQQptZ Radio_Control_Vehicles?hash=item190293664412&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C 240%3A1308%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

If found this shaft at Heads up RC, it seems to be for a 2408-21 motor. It's about a 1/4 inch longer and there's about an 1/16th of an inch more between the set screw flat and the C clip groove, than what I have. http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the-1404/Motor-Shaft-for-the/Detail

So I gues my question is: Think this will work? Know where I might find a larger selection of shafts?

Thanks.

Thanks for the link. It's a lot more helpful than anything I've found. Maybe I'll just put out the 20 bucks and get a new motor. Or buy something I know I can get replacement parts for.

I have the same plane and I bent the shaft as well. I first picked up a BM2410-12 motor off ebay for $10. I didn't feel like soldering the motor to the ESC so I just swapped out the shaft... worked perfect.

I also found another site where you can order the 3mm shafts aarchobby dot com

I've made my own replacement 3mm shafts from 1/8th scale car shock shafts. Easy to find and with a few minutes of cut-off wheel work, I have a better than original shaft!

Now that is worth knowing - easier than finding 3mm drill blanks!

I used an A arm hinge pin for a replacement shaft and it bent easier than the original.
My next attempt was a piece of 1/8" piano wire from my LHS and turned it down with crocus cloth chucked up in an electric drill( the shaft chucked up not the crocus cloth.. This works very easily with the 1/8" shaft motors, just clean them up and check the diameter with some micrometers and grind flats with Drummel tool cut off wheel.

It is good to be able to do this kind of repair if you land your plane in the lawn dart position.

It is good. I think it will work well.
