I'm trying to get hold of a parts diagram for a piccolo, does anyone
know if there is one online anywhere as i'm not sure what the parts are
called + the part number?. The main bit I need is the center part of the
main head (the bit which hold the two bearings!), does anyone know the
part code.

Thanks, Richard

There are scanned instructions at
http://www.mike.redhotant.co.uk/piccolo.htm
The part you are wondering about is called a hub and the part number is
67369.
Many piccolo flyers are getting aluminum replacements from a guy called J in
Sweden.
They cost around $20 US... not so cheap.. but the parts are of top
quality... it'll never break again.
Also, J's hubs hold the bearings on with screws so you wont ever have to
search frantically for the bearings after a crash.
As a side note, you should check out the Piccolo BB at:
http://www.ikarus-modellbau.de/cgi-forum/Ultimate.cgi?action=intro  ...
there's tons of great info.
Hope this helps.

Pierre only asks for a donation, and fit the standard anti-rotation link as
they are the same diameter as the stock hub.

You plastic hub can be repaired, I used two screws and brass eyelets that
came with the pico servo's and secured the bearings to the hub this way -
works a treat
