Spoke to the LHS about the slipping E118 pinion gear. He told me that when he used CA, the pinion gear still manages to slip on the shaft 3 times in flight.

Now, he recommends using epoxy or JBweld.

I'm wondering what adhesive are the rest of you using?

I just press it on!
If you ca,how do you remove to change it after?
If it slip,it is either your E118 is too worn out or your shaft need to be replace.

Remove

Just remove the tail boom, and with a Ball Link pliers w/teeth, remove the pinion. With JB it' almost impossible.
Use C.A Medium. Insert first in the pinion and press the pinion, never use C.A on the shaft, because when you press the pinion you can lock the bearing with C.A.
To change for a new pinion, fisrt sand down the shaft, just to remove the old C.A.
