Just crashed my R60 today because of a faulty torque tube.

Now I'm thinking of converting it to a belt driven tail.

I've read the article in MHW but I want something simpler.

I'm thinking of something like using the gears from a Hirobo Freya or similar.

Has anyone tried gears/belts or complete tail gear boxes from other brands with success on th R60 and if so, please give me the details!

Any other suggestions regarding belt drive conversion are welcome as well!

A lot of trouble when just drilling and pinning the tube as documented on this forum many times will fix the problem.

Been there - done that

I'm not interested in fixing the torque tube drive.

What I want is a belt drive system that is cheap to maintain and will stand up to most crashes - unlike the rather expensive torque tube drive.

get a heli like the freya with a belt drive if that means so much to you... or if cost is such a big factor to you, you might want to consider getting a R50... quite a bit cheaper to repair...
