The Scorpion HK-4526 motors are built with 8mm hardened steel shafts that will last through countless hours of flying fun, but occasionally, on a "Less than Perfect" landing, you may bend or break one. For these occasions, we offer factory replacement shafts for all the HK-4526 series Scorpion Helicopter Motors.
This extended shaft for the HK-4526 series motors measures 8mm in diameter, and is 116mm in long. The pinion end of this shaft is ground down to 6mm, and extends out from the mounting face of the motor 50mm, to allow the user to install 6mm pinion gears. The extra length of this shaft allows for external support bearings at the end of the pinion gear. The shaft kit will also fit other brushless motors that require a 8mm shaft of this length. The shafts can be cut shorter with a Dremel tool and a cut-off wheel if necessary to fit other motors.
Note: The shafts in Scorpion motors are a slight press fit into the aluminum front housing. The shafts will not just slide out when the setscrews are removed. They need to be pressed out in a bearing press, or in a drill press, with the front housing of the motor supported in a block of wood to prevent warping the front housing.
