Base Plate Assembly.

  • Lasercut 8mm steel ( Grade 250 ) parts.
  • Not shown - Hinge tube and shaft.

Propeller Hub Assembly to suit a set of 3 timber blades or 6 plastic blades

  • Lasercut 3mm steel ( Grade 250 ) parts.

The kit once included all nuts and bolts, plus the bearings. But the cost of supplying the kit was more than I was selling them for, so the current kit does not include these parts. However these are easily obtained from you local hardware outlet and bearing supplier. The assembly manual includes details of all the nuts, bolts and bearings. I can supply the bearings is needed for $35.
