  • Phoenixtech 600ESP 600 Size Flybarless Helicopter - KIT

    Anybody grab one of these kits yet? Would love to see it in a 600 sized Roban body.

    I bought one last year before they went out of stock…very nice ESP clone. I did add the 3rd main shaft bearing block. Flew it as pod and boom (Align canopy from Ebay) before I set it up for a Roban 600 EC-145 conversion, which has moved down on my priority list a little. The only negative I found with the PhoenixTech 600 clone, and it’s really more of a warning than complaint, is that the main shaft stop collar is made from sintered metal (MIM) and will break if one or both of the set screws is tightened too much. Will post pics when I complete the EC-145.

        I just got the combo for the Roban MD-500E G-Jive Red 600 Size Helicopter Scale Conversion - KIT

        I already have a 3sx Demon.

        The Phoenixtech is ready for test flight before installing into the 500 but!!!! no motor pinion, the pinion that came with the kit does not work. Slant Thread Pinion Gear are a thing today, Motion needs to fix this and start offing pinions for the motors they sale. What's funny is I called Motion RC to check to see if the kit had a pinion. Yep all set. LOL I have a set of Align ESP pro main and tail drive gears along with a pinion 6mm . Don't think the main gear are going to fit, the main gear is to tall. So right now on the hunt for a PINION! NON SLANT.. any ideas?

          Try eBay. They have been the best place to find pinions of all sizes in my experience. I just searched Trex 600 pinion and got quite a few results.

            Thank you, I've ordered a few but my point is Motion RC needs to offer pinons or change the Phoenixtech drive gears or give us a pinon that will work with their motor of choice for the kit.
            I still may get a bigger hammer to make the T-rex 600 ESP Pro drive gears to work. On a good note, other than the drive gears I do like the Phoenixtech 600 kit. The side frames are better than the old T-rex side frames. I'm very happy that Motion RC is offering The Phoenixtech kits, it takes away from finding the right mechanics to fit the scale body.
