ERC 84" Gee Bee Struts

ERC 84" Gee Bee Senior Sportster Replacement Struts - The stock struts were made from lightweight Extruded Aluminum and break under the stresses of normal use. This is the only significant flaw in this otherwise beautiful and dependable airplane. Our heavy duty, yet relatively light weight struts, offer an upgrade in strength for your 84" Green Model Gee Bee Senior Sportster's under carriage. These Struts WILL NOT BREAK! Our strut system also replaces the stock guide screw with a roll pin, greatly reducing the shock friction. This is a drop in replacement. No modifications are required. See the Green Model Gee Bee Senior Sportster by clicking HERE!

Manufactured in our own CNC manufacturing facility in Zebulon NC, these new lower struts are machined from the finest 1018 steel stock for years of lasting service and reliability. This is just one of the many metal products designed and manufactured by East R/C in our own shop.

*NOTE* - These were designed as an upgrade/replacent for the original struts on the Version 1 84" Gee Bee. The newer version has different struts that these will not work with.

BSR - Black Streak Remover

BSR - Black Streak Remover - Once again, East R/C partnered with AmTex, makers of many cleaning products for Scootworks (our parent company), to market their new Black Streak Remover recently designed and patented for the RV industry. Many of us have trailers for our airplanes, and constantly battle with those darned black streaks that appear after every rainfall or heavy dew. We've tried every cleaner in the book, some being very harsh and requiring heavy gloves and lots of water, others requiring loads of physical effort to only yield average results. This cleaner is the answer to all of our dreams... ERC's BSR requires little effort, is safe and easy to use, and reveals the beautiful trailer you have hidden beneath all of those stains! The 1qt. bottle cleaned the 6 year old 6'x10' trailer in photo #4 below, and had about 1/2 bottle left. Checkout a test trailer in picture #3, the front corner was simply wiped over with ERC's BSR!

UAC - Ultimate Aircraft Cleaner

UAC - Ultimate Aircraft Cleaner - East R/C partnered with AmTex, makers of many cleaning products for Scootworks (our parent company), to develop the Ultimate Aircraft Cleaner. We wanted something that would be gentle on painted and fabric surfaces, yet strong enough to cut the goo left from glow fuels and soot / exhaust residue from gas engines. We also needed something that wouldn't attack plastics and film coverings, and would be perfect for the finishes used on many wooden props and other parts. UAC is the final result of the AmTex chemists design, and our field testing with the local pilots. Give this a try, we think you'll agree that it _IS_ the Ulimate Aircraft Cleaner!

# Biodegradable!
# Safe for Plastics, Fiberglass, shrink films.
# Safe on painted and fabric surfaces.
# Safe on natural wood finishes.
# Cuts Glow Fuel Lubricants & Gass Engine Fuel Residue
# Economical!

ERC CNC Aluminum and PolyCarbonate Carburetor Spacers

ERC CNC Aluminum and PolyCarbonate Carburetor Spacers -

Manufactured in our own CNC manufacturing facility in Zebulon NC, these new carb spacers are currently available as replacements to the stock plastic carb insulator for both the Zenoah G-20ei and the Zenoah G-26 (unique part for each), as well as some other cross compatible applications.

When using our CNC Aluminum replacements we recommend the use of cork style gaskets and not the stock aluminum gasket.

Our PolyCarbonate replacements are CNC Machined the same way we machine the aluminum spacers. The stock aluminum gasket is compatible with this version of the Zenoah spacer. Being CNC Machined PolyCarbonate, they are incredibly stronger than the stock spacer.

Our carb spacers are a direct, bolt on replacement and require no modifications to your engine. These are compatible with the Zenoah Velocity Stack. Unlike the stock spacer, these will not break. Never buy another spacer again!

ERC Electric Prop Savers

ERC Prop Savers -

Our CNC Aluminum Prop Savers fit four different motor shaft sizes, 2.3mm, 3mm, 3.2mm, and 4mm. Unlike other prop savers, which can some times be hard to find, ours come with stainless steel socket head allen screws. These will not strip nearly as easy as the typical cheap phillips screws that come with others. They also come with two prop saver bands, and we sell seperate packs of four in case you need more.

For those who aren't familiar with prop savers for electric motors- the whole idea is for the prop to have some "give" in the event of an impact to prevent it from breaking. You simply tighten the screws to the motor shaft with the "nipple" facing out. Next slide the prop on. Then take one of the O-Rings and stretch it from one screw, over the center of the prop, and around the other screw.

Please check out/vote for Brandon's Bike!

My youngest son (Brandon from East R/C) has been working on his bike for over a year at night and on weekends, along with a couple of his co-workers. He finished it about 3 months ago. He entered it in a contest on 96Rock and it is now in the top 10. This is no credit card bike...everything on it, except the frame, has been hand built or modified in some way. Being on a budget, many parts came from wrecks/salvage or are modified factory items. It's his first bike, and we're all very proud of it (especially Brandon!). Please go have a look at it and give him a vote. The voting link is:
