Flexible drive and it's parts!
« on: June 30, 2013, 06:55:32 PM »

Afternoon all,

After watching a Bluebird skipping across the waters at Bushy Park Teddington this morning, i'm drawn to using the flexible drive and all, having just mastered Brushless basics  :embarrassed: Where would a new convert find, learn and obtain such a complete system without to much trouble digging around on the inter web? I have coming a Large rudder coming from HobbyKing plus 3120KV water-cooled motor.

I will be converting an old fibreglass delta wing shaped speedboat about 30" in length.

Any help tracking down such a mystical drive would be very much grateful received.  :-))

heres where i get mine. But take heed from my experince. There is a cheaper 4mm one but in order to get the flex out you have to remove the stinger which is a royal pain in the bottom. Use this 3/16 one as the availability for for dog drive props is plentiful whereas 4mm is pretty limited.

I'll vouch for that seller as well, made several purchases from him and all have been painless (only on the wallet  :embarrassed: )
Also if you have any questions deop him a message, he seems pretty clued up on the kid he sells

That's Dave Marles at Prestwich.
I'll give him a  :-)) as well. Good parts, good service and good advice should you need it.

Totally agree Prestwich models are good.
