Title: 2mm stainless prop shaft - staightness
Post by: goingdown on November 02, 2019, 01:02:34 PM
Hi,


I am mid way through a 1/350 rc conversion which requires exposed shafts and bracket.  I have noticed that both propshafts I have bought have not been 100% straight, which is ok if you have bearings at either end of a prop tube but not so much if the shaft extends beyond the tube to support brackets.   


does anyone have any recommendations for the source of really straight propshafts?  I wondered about drill steel but I imagine that would rust fairly quick.
