Front Hook

Front Hooks $.50

This is the small plastic piece that is glued onto the forward end of the Motor Stick to receive the Ikara propeller assembly. This set up allows for quick and easy propeller removal or change. Mounting ring measured .203” I.D. or .51 cm and weighs .09 gram.

Rear Hook

Rear Hooks $.50

This is the small plastic piece that is glued onto the rear of the Motor Stick that the end of the rubber motor will hook onto. Measures approximately .200” or .5 cm long and weighs .035 gram.

Nose Button

Nose Buttons $.50

These are the same plastic pieces that are included with the Ikara propeller assemblies. Each weigh .115gr and slides into the front hook to allow easy removal of the upper rotor (or propeller). A tiny glass bead is included with each to help reduce friction.

O-Rings

O-Rings (dozen) $2.00

Buna-N (Nitrile) 7/32” (.109”) Inside Dimension, 15/64” (.234”) Outside dimension. These are the perfect size O-Rings to use when attaching the winder to the rubber motor for winding and then to prevent loosing winds when removing the motor from the winder to attach it the rear rubber hook. Sold by the dozen.

.020” x 12” Piano Wire $.25

This thin wire is used to make propeller shafts, rotor shafts, and extensions. Each piece is .020” diameter and is 12” long. It can easily be cut with wire cutters and bent with round nosed or needle nosed pliers.

.5mm x 13” Carbon Fiber Rod $.75

This is the same Carbon Fiber Rod stock that is used in our kits for leading and trailing edges. It measures approximately .020” diameter (.5mm) and will often have some bow after manufacture (not perfectly straight). By orienting the bow in a chosen direction, it should not pose problems, but should be considered when building.

Mylar Covering - 5 foot long x 12.3” wide on a roll $5.00

Crystal clear Mylar covering material (approximately 1.8 microns thick - .20g/144 sq”). This is the same film that is included in the Freedom Flight kits listed above. Be prepared, have an extra roll available for repairs or further experimentation.

1mm x 13” Carbon Fiber Rod $.75

This is the same Carbon Fiber Rod that is used in our kits for Tail Booms, Wing Posts and Ground Adjustable Propeller Spars. It is stiff and straight, but substantially heavier than the .5mm Rod.

Carbon Fiber Rod

3K Carbon Fiber Tow – 20’ $5.00

This is a thin ribbon of 3000 strands of carbon fiber loosely bound for handling as a ribbon. This is the same ribbon that is commonly used to weave into carbon fiber sheets that can be seen in may places in the automotive and aviation industry. It measures approximately .080” wide and .003” thick. To be correctly utilized, it must be bedded down in a matrix of super glue, epoxy or model cement. The fibers must be saturated for full strength, and dryness will yield greatly reduced it. However, any excess glue on top of, or beside the ribbon will only add weight but very little strength.

Sold as it comes in our kits, 20’ long wrapped around a stick.

.072” OD x .020” ID x 6” Yellow Plastic Tube $.50

This Nylon tube is used to increase the diameter of 1mm Carbon Fiber Rod to allow a friction fit into the .125” plastic tubing. It is also as a center support tube for our helicopter rotors as well as a bushing for some prop shafts or wheels.

Kevlar Thread

Kevlar Thread (Size 23) – 20’ $4.00

This yellow Kevlar thread has incredible tensile strength for its light weight. It is considered Size 23 and measures approximately .003” in diameter. Because of its high strength, it is very non-stretchy and can be used to increase structural strength with minimum weight when used properly.

Sold as it comes in our kits, 20’ long wrapped around a stick.

.125” OD x .066” ID x 6” Yellow Plastic Tube $.50

Bottle with Brush

Bottle with Brush Top $2.50

This amber colored glass bottle has a one ounce capacity and is perfect to store and apply acetone. Acetone is used to dilute and dissolve model cement and is invaluable for using to reposition Mylar covering when using spray adhesive on balsa frames. Acetone must be purchased locally but these are a very good container for use and storage.
