K&S Japan (KSJ) - KSJ239 - Deluxe Hex Start Shaft Assembly

KSJ's Heli/Plane Starting System

If you're like many R/C pilots, you take both helicopters and airplanes to the flying field for an afternoon of fun. That means you also have to lug along two starters, one with a helicopter extension and one with a standard starting cone.

Well, not anymore!

KSJ's Deluxe Hex Start Shaft Assembly features a machined aluminum base that clamps onto your starter. When you want to fly helicopters, just screw on the included helicopter starter extension. When it's time to fly airplanes, just unscrew the heli extension and screw on the optional airplane spinner cup assembly. In about 15 seconds, your starter is converted for airplanes.


KSJ's Deluxe Hex Starter Shaft Assembly includes a purple anodized base that clamps on most starters. It has a one-way Torrington bearing mounted in the end so that the extension can free-wheel when the engine starts. The extension screws onto the base and has a steel hex ball end that allows for up to a 30° angular misalignment of the extension to the start shaft.

A machined steel adaptor is included that fits all top cone start type .60 size helis with a 6mm start shaft (JR, X-cell, Kalt, Schluter, etc). Two radial bearings support the extension, and because the base solidly mounts to the starter's shaft, the whole unit is very rigid.

When you're done flying, you can quickly remove the extension for compact storage. All aluminum extension parts are brightly purple anodized.

As with all KSJ accessories, finish and quality are of the highest standard, more like fine camera equipment than model accessories.

Start out each flight in style with KSJ.
