Default STS28 Rotostart Backplate

Hi Dino!

Are these for real? It looks like someone is selling roto-backplates for the STS!!!

What a bummer, he only ships within the UK

I figured it out. O-ring for the HSN is not sealing. Where do I get replacements for my engine? Someone help, it's no fun to be down.

I took out the o-ring and streched it a little. Fits just right. Seals now.
I have this engine in my monster, and it flies. Crazy power.
Thank you STS!

I am trying to find a dealer in the U.S. that carries the sts line of motors and engine parts is there one or not? I emailed zen but there is no reponse from them. why is it so hard to find these motors? all you can do is buy new ones off ebay.

I am in the same boat. I emailed zen, but no response. Do they carry parts?
I don't see anything on their site that says they do.
