How long do the tail gears last on the Raptor 60's?
Are there any upgraded gears available?

How tight is the right gear mesh on these?, do you want to feel the mesh get "notchy" on part of the revolution of the gears and let them wear in with use?


Thanks in advance.

Forgot to ask, do you grease these gears?

I set mine up so there is minimal gear lash in it usually add one thin washer....they last a long time as long as you dont touch the tail to the ground, I had a set fail in a big way after bairly touching the tail on the ground, and seeing as it was hardly noticeable I kept flying until it failed at a high altitude....moral of the story, I check em often now you will always have a bit of gear lash in it and thats normal...and you dont have to lubricate...the gear itself is self lubricating, I have looked for upgrades (as a result of my crash) and have not found any!
