I personally prefer a good shaft drive in most any heli from 50 size on up.

But a belt can still have its place in the smaller sizes IMHO. Although even in those I will take a good shaft drive also.

Some of these shaft drive systems (e.g. those with dogbone type of coupling at both ends, like is found in the Predator GS) are surprisingly crash resistant, as these couplings will allow them to bend at the front or at the back in a crash.

And what does a torque tube do?

Break when you crash if you bend the boom. Other that that, its

service FREE!

well, of all things I'm not gonna let whether or not a model has a belt or a torque tube drive put me off from buying a particular model.

They both have their pros and cons depending on your personal opinion since both can perform just as well as the other when properly maintained.
