Hi,

After converting to eCCPM, my bird of course flys much better, but in a crash the servo gears are more likely to strip since they are directly connected.

Man it sucks when you strip those gears. Replacements are hard to find plus having to disassemble them for repairs. I guess I need to stop crashing so often!

I'm from the larger nitro heli world and it seems like I'm starting over. I feel like a newbie.

I like the new Align push-pull eCCPM since the servo is isolated by the bellcranks.

It would be nice to have this arrangement on the Rotorworkz frame.

Does anyone know of a way to lessen the impact? Some sort of servo saver? Softer push rods, maybe more flexible servo horns?

Thanks,

Tim.

I was wondering the exact same thing, I have striped another HS55. I ordered a couple of gear sets, but after exchange and shipping, might as well buy a new servo!

I have an idea though, it's a pretty simple solution if it works: design a break-away part at either the ball joint or servo arm.

Or a servo arm that would break off if forced. Those gears are fairly tough, so if we made a part weaker than the gears, but ridgid enough to handle the swash movement we would be set.

I've stripped 4 X hs56hb's in the last 3 crashes i've had since i did the eccpm mod. I only ever stripped 1 X hs 50 (on the tail) pre eccpm, and cant count the crashes i had then,

But boy does it fly well now, i aint going back to a stock t-rex.
Any1 know were to get HS56HB gear set,s....???

I just ordered the last five sets from Helihobby. They are hard to find. They were $4 a set.

Yes, wouldn't that servo saver solve the stripping problem? Why wouldn't TREX flyers use these? Do they not make them for HS56hb

Yeah, that's what I was thinking of...some sort of spring loaded servo horn. I'll do some research to find out if something like that can be used for the hs56s.

It would be nice to minimize crash damage as we experience it. Eventually we could come to a nice medium of performance vs. durability.

Time to become a pest!
If we start being a pest to these people, they might start producing servo savers for our micro servos like the HS50,55 and 56, any others?
