Torque tube?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I was considering putting a scale body on a trex 500 with a TT. I like to put a Huey scale body but it has a elevated tail rotor system that requires a belt drive , I assume. Is there a way to marry the two systems or is there a conversion kit to go from TT to belt.

Thanks John T

Re: Torque tube?

You can have an elevated TT. Align make then for the 500 Hopefully it is the correct angle for you.

Re: Torque tube?

Align released their own elevated tail for a torque tube. If you buy either their blackhawk or cobra they come with the elevated tail.
