It is getting difficult to source parts for older 450 class machines suchas the Align T-Rex 450XL, 450SEV2, clone 450s and Walkera 400 class, while some parts are available state-side the cost of importing them is simply way too expensive, especially when some small parts could be sent in bubble-rap envelopes.

So I'm thinking, ‘get a 3D printer and a CNC router.'

Has any of you out there tried producing parts with a 3D printer or CNC router?

Hi Burgess,
Here are some sites that may help although not specifically for Helicopters

Thanks for sharing those links Keith.
It looks like it'll be a journey of discovery investigating 3D printing options and CNC applications.
