Im hearing a lot rumours of gears get worn easily, and turning to powder. Im wondering if it might be a good idea to put a dab of nylon grease on then to reduce the wear and friction. I have done this before only problem is you have to clean it off every once in a while because it collects dirt.

The gears are self lubricating, no need to add grease. The failures are not cause by improper lubrication.

Putting grease on gears will also catch all sort of debris, dirt, grass...

I meant that gears of material like that normally need no lube. Metal to metal yes, Lubing the tail gear might increase were due to debree sticking to them. Backlash is the biggest killer other than crashes. Another member sent me this pic on doing a mod to decrease the backlash in the gear train. This would probably be the best option going to meaking the gears last.
