I got the prop...now if only the AXI motors with the hollow shaft would arrive.

Hey
I have made some hollow shafts for the AXI 220634 and 221226.
They are made of stainless steel and then heat treated.
They are made for the EVP unit but may work on others as well.
I only have a couple left . If interested contact me.
Will try to get some pics.
This was done to keep from waiting and buying another AXI just for this.

they do not necessarily need a hollow shaft motor, but on the small sizes and the need/desire for lightweight, it is the simplist solution ( which is why they are ). it would be possible to built something or use a microcopter swashplate with all the outer balls and connecting rods going outside the motor, but that would be a ballache by comparrison and would need more shaft unsupported in front of the motor.
