Default parts source?

I am buying a 425 from a flying buddy this winter. Good deal, I am looking forward to flying this machine. But parts are not as main stream as on my Trex, where are good places to get parts?

Thanks!

Welcome to the Gaui family. Don't have time to post links right now, but my favorite Gaui hurricane parts dealers are, RCDumbthumbs, AlleRC, and Heli Flight Center. You can also order direct from the U.S. Gaui distributer, Empire RC.

BTW, in case you are not familiar with the Hurricane, the 425 and the 550 share most all of the same parts, except the 550 has a longer tail boom, belt, tail control rod, and, of course blades. So you can look for 550 parts as they are the same. Also, some of the X4 and X5 parts are the same as the Hurri parts just with a different part number.

Hope this helps, and good luck with your new Hurri.

Thanks. Two guys at my field have them and they both love them. I am just afraid I may not want to fly my Trex 450 anymore.

Well, if you are like me you will still fly your 450. I still fly my little Gaui 200 and my old 450 all the time. I use them to practice new stuff before trying it on the bigger helicopters.

One nice thing about the Gaui 425 is that if you want to go bigger some day, you can easily convert it to a 550. The boom conversion kit is less than $20 and comes with the boom, belt, and control rod. Then just get some bigger main and tail blades. Depending on the kv of your motor you can either re-gear it for a lower head speed or pop in a different motor. There are lots of gearing options available with the multi-gear drive on the Hurri.

There are actually 3 different tail boom kits. One for blades up to 430mm, one for blades up to 500mm and one for blades up to 550mm. I have at least one of each.
