No, you can't buy it separately, nor can you buy a replacement shaft (from HK).. You need to buy a better supported outboard long term.

3 thumbs up!
Great boat , hull thin,light ,strong.The outboard made from plastic with flex drive and 4mm shaft and 2 bearing .The esc heat too fast cause it draw to much amp. The prop is might be too big. If not reduced the prop size or just go with a turnigy 120a esc , it could run on 11.1-14.8v ,with out worry.It handle very good but the servo is kind of weak and noisy.Servo need more torque if you wanted to mod it.I had put Ammo brushless motor on stock outboard with 120a turnigy esc,lipo 14.8v and octura x640. It's flying and needs more weight in the front and adjusted the AOA

Hi! I'm The3PK. Just received hornet today it more valuable comparing to the price. Outboard is brushless size 380L, it's not 540 size but fast enough when used 3 cell lipo. The weakest point is water proof of esc isnot 100 sealed. I change prop to octura 3 blade 3/437 (Diameter 37 mm. Pitch 1.4) speed improved fascinating. The next run I try to setting outboard angle and lift it up a little bit for more stable while running in the water. Thank you the hobbyking to bring this stuff in your store and hope you are spare part to supply soon.
