KDE Direct Pinion Support

KDE Direct Pinion Support

KDE Direct have a new add-on to their T-Rex 700 electric conversion kit. They have now produced an Electronic Pinion Support Upgrade. This is a rather ingenious little device that bolts above the motor and provides a full bearing support to the top of the pinion. The idea is to eliminate lateral flexing of the pinion and reduce wear and possible stripping of the main gear.

Because the Support mounts to the motor mount only and not to the frame it is hard to say how much flex it will actually eliminate but it will certainly help to some degree. As always, KDE provides clear installation instructions.

Ok, this is just starting to get silly now. RCHeliResource.com has shots from the Tokyo Hobby Show that reveal a brand new .90 sized electric heli being produced by JR. No further details yet. At this rate we’ll be seeing a new .90 sized electric every week in 2010!
