Will a freya evo 12tooth pinion work on an x-spec or are they different?

different. The Evo uses a triple bearing stack and the Xspec uses
a double. The Evo pinion will be too tall

I second that notion. I had an Evo pinion and machined it down to the size the X-Spec was supposed to be. I only did this to get me flying in a pinch.

I bought a second hand X-Spec that had a cut down Evo pinion in it...worked just fine.

But really, what's the point? Pinions are easy to come by.

yes, it could easily work. the top of the pinion is held in <n> bearings to stabilize the pinion/bell. there are no teeth or
anything like that so you could cut it down if you had to or really
wanted to. I think the bearing thickness is 6mm

I cut it it works great, the reason i did is because i dont have an extra 25$ after buying the heli im out of money, plus if a simple thing like grinding can fix the problem for free why not?
