450 Sport tail rotor shaft compatible with 450 SE V2 tail?
« on: April 11, 2011, 09:26:45 PM »
In my last "crash" the tail blades struck the ground at an angle and one of the blades snapped off.  Well it turns out that caused the tail rotor shaft to bend and now I need to replace it.  I'm trying to buy a replacement locally so I dont have to wait weeks for it to arrive.  The problem is I cant find Align Trex 450 SE V2 tail rotor shafts anywhere, it's like they are no longer sold.  However, almost everywhere sells Align Trex 450 Sport tail rotor shafts.  Are these compatible with a 450 SE V2 tail assembly?  The noticeable difference from the picture is that the sport tail shaft has a hole for attaching the tail rotor hub where as the SE V2 tail shaft has kind of an indent for attaching the tail rotor hub.  I don't know anything about the size of them though, such as are they the same length and/or diameter. 

Here's the Align 450 Sport tail shaft


Here's an unknown brand 450 SE V2 tail shaft

Yes they will do fine the align ones I had the hole didnt go all way through just for seating the grub screw in ,
some shafts that I have used are all slightly different lenths by 1-4mm but where the Tail rotors actually sat where all the same position in the end

I got these from ebay and they are listed as compatible with the sport and V2

I am using one of them in my CX450 SE V2 without a problem
So I would think the Align ones would also be useable on both models
