I just put my Himax 3200 in with a 9t pinion and it sits on the lower half of the tail input gear. So I have to reverse the output gear on the hex shaft. How do I go about taking it apart?

Thanks,

Chris

Undo 5 cross point screws driven in from the left side of the tail and the tail gearbox splits in 2. The tail gear is just pushed onto the hex shaft.

Ah, that's easy enough. I just didn't know if there was something to remove first. Thanks!

You might find it easier if you also remove the tail pitch lever (mind you dont loose the washer!) For changing the tal gear you dont need to do it, just it might be easier if you do.

I tried last night to get the gear off of the hex shaft and it was a nightmare. It was late and I didn't want to break it in frustration, so I'll try again after work. Is that thing glued on or just pressed on so hard?

Yeah I got it off, thanks! I was just worried with it all being plastic that I would break something if I applied too much force. How do you get the hole hex shaft off from the T/R spindle? I might replace it when I go with the blue gears. Thanks!

daywalker75,

The Microheli blue gears come with the shaft installed. No need to reuse the hex.

Yeah, but How do I remove the old hex from the blade holder hub?

output shaft

you just take off the tail blades and there is a hex bolt inside the base of the holders. Just loosen them a little and the shaft will slip out.
