You can get the gears to work ok but they will never be as strong as a belt drive system. I have a HELIUP beltdrive which is awsome. It is dear and takes a little tweaking but comes with cnc / bb elevator carriage so it illiminates that horrible stock elevator setup. two birds with one stone.

Well worth it!!

If you can afford it the heli up is the better of the two, but a fair bit more cash. Secondly HubDave, he has great support and attitude! Good luck!

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Hub Dave at heliworkz! His belt drive is nice and cheaper too.

Here is a link: http://www.heliworkz.com/

He has a nice carbon frame too. But his customer service is the best in the business!!!!!

Don't come off the throttle untill you see your GOD!

I have a Hubdave installed in my Shogun and it has been the best mod for the money. I never worry about tail issues.

I can fly off grass without a problem, the Hubdave belt drive has never fail me and I think it is worth the price.

I bought many sets of replacement gears, before I bought the belt drive, I tried CNC metal gears and the lot. Nothing worked, they all stipped over time.

With the belt drive I am still running the same setup and belt from last year!

I wanted to put in my opinion as well.
I would recommend the Hubdave belt drive kit also.
I have had this on my Zoom for about 9 months with no problems,
and you couldn't ask for a better person to deal with.

Im using hitec hs50 with scotch tape around the servo because the case sometimes opens.

How does the belt upgrade from HeliHobby compare? Is it a good one, and does anybody have one installed?

I've read about tail vibrations in other threads. Have you had any of those problems with Hub Daves belt drive?

Also, how easy/difficult is it to install? Are there any gotcha's I should know about?

Thanks for the info.

I have HubDaves belt drive mod and have no vibration issues.

You do have to cut the frame and fit side plates but it is all fairly straightforward and in my opinion, once it is assembled the frame is stiffer than original.

Come on guys, there doesn't seem to be much support here for the heliup kit. remember for the extra $ you get a cnc / bb elevator carriage which is well needed on these heli's. I don't know about the other belt drive kits but i do know i'm well happy with my set up.

I suspect most people have opted for the cheaper options hence the number of posts for Hub Daves kit (and i'm not knocking it). As an engineer i cant fault the heliup kit aand value the extra quality. I have had countless hours of uninterupted fun since my upgrade [thanks Corrado].

Heliup Belt drive 'n' tail gear box - Microheli tailrotor and pitch lever - best of both worlds.

Just didn't fancy cutting my £30+ frames in half to fit the hubdave kit and I like Corrado's version of the pulleys.

Finally, by the time anything manufactured/distributed in the states gets to us the the UK, we need to remortgage our homes to get it Lol.

There are more than 2 versions on the market (there's a web site that even shows you how to make you own beltdrive), just do yourself a big favour and get one - you'll be impressed.

Regards

Chas
