>Can you give me some advice on how to get the stock pins out of the hornet II main shaft. There are two. One in the  >main gear and one in the head block.

very depending... on the configuration of parts (with or without electronic and plastic) around...

  • Only metal part -> in hoven 80°C, let dilatation work for You...
  • A mix of plastics and metal without electronics-> in freezer -10°C during 2 hours , let dilatation work for You...
  • A full heli around :-) use a grip like this one:  or a  smaller model ->



    apply a pressure on only one side of the pins with grip, the other side must touche only the main shaft
