like tail blades and main blades . After I have thought about what caused my crash yesterday, I really think that maybe one of my tail blades just broke off and it wasn't bearing failure afterall. I will never be sure. So that is why I want carbon everything. Thanks for any help .

Mastic, which version of EP8 do you have? V1 or V2, Just want to know if your counter gear is 23t or 25t. I had a similar crash early on with my V1 running the 23t counter gear on too high a head speed. Of course it was my fault, but after doing an investigation on what actually caused the crash, I was able to narrow it down to the tail shaft bending and or the servo linkage comming loose. Is your linkage rod the carbon or steel piece?

The reason why Im asking all this is I dont think Carbon tail blades wouldve prevented any of this. Just to add, I cant find CF tail blades short enough to run with the stock boom. If you go with a stretch it will open alot of doors for you.

twinring is right , if you have the V1 it has the 23tooth counter and you need at least to change to a 25tooth to slow the tail shaft down...smaller gear makes the tail shaft go faster
