Product Description

These are our OEM RED 3 Petals  5mm CarbonBird® Collet shafts for crash replacement for RED 5mm SYSTEM ASSEMBLY (does not fit the economy silver collets) - so if bent replace only this part -- With Multicopters it's critical to have a 100% perfect straight/true collet shaft to ensure the prop is rotating dead-centre.  In the event of impact the CarbonBird motor shaft will usually fail at the machined failpoint (small groove machined into the shaft) but if the shaft is reversed then these force can be absorbed by the Collet (this item) and it may be off centre - and is best replaced.
