Has anybody tried both ultem and blue gears? Which is more durable?
Thank you for your input.

I´ve heard that the blue gears are far better than ultem.

Fear is different than respect !

Blue gears

I just had my first flight with micro-heli's new blue gears. It came in a package with the drive shaft ready to go (I thought).
After 2 minutes of hovering, the tail got crazy
When I inspected the tail I found out that the drive shaft had moved further out of the drive-side bearing (approx. 5mm).
When I checked my second set I relized that the blue gear is very sloppy on the drive shaft.

Question: Are you guys CA'ing the gear on to the shaft to keep it from spinning?

Thanks, Martin

The ULTEM gears Crack when the set screw is tightened. Stuff is way to brittle.

The blu gears wear very well!!! The only problem i had was not tightening the set screw enough on the 1st one i installed. It then proceeded to spin on the hex section and chew it up eventually wrecking the drive shaft. I have a metal one now and all seems well

This Heli Will Self Destruct In Five Seconds!!

The blue gears are way better! Yes, I did end up using a little ca to keep shaft from moving. Not a design flaw, just that is what will happen when you get rid of hex shaft( which is crap). I think I may have even loosened mine up because I flipped the gear to make it work with how I have my pinion set-up. Microheli blue gears are by far the best. Only thing that could be better would be a beveled set of blue gears from Microheli, are you listening Andy! Can you grant our wish man!

If it is a gear, it can be of any shape! The only important thing is the material! If there is a need, there is a feed.

Who can refuse the request from Captain KEV?

Actually I prefer blue color of the gears so it goes well with the tail pitch slider horn.

How about two weeks KEV.... need one week to receive the bevel gears....

Sounds like one hell of a plan! I will take a set for sure.
