I got a used Hawk Pro that the original owner was afraid to fly. He did run it up a few times though. It looks like he didn't loctite the pinion on the counter shaft and it rode up and ground on the under side of the main gear.

I can't find any pics to be able to tell how much has been ground away. It looks like there is about 2mm left of the splines under there.

If I could get a gear somewhat quickly, I'd just replace it but I'll have to order one.

1. Does anyone think the main gear is OK to fly? It still seems plenty thick.

2. I picked this heli up after the black friday sale at heli-world. They don't have the hawk pro tuned muffler or fiberglass canopy in stock. Anyone know when they might get this stuff back in? Do they typically have sales throughout the year.

I had a Hawk Sport that I loved and never crashed and wished I had kept. I'm getting back into RC helis after a few years break.

it's good to have you here on the Century Page,, but you know it's hard to say about that Gear without seeing it, so with that I would say don't use it, that Gear is only like $8, that's not too much money to save a crash..

as for your 2nd question I would not know, I didn't even know they made a Fiberglass Muffler, you will have to ask Century..

Ok, if you interested. I have one that ill send you free of charge. No sense in flying with messed up parts, especially when the replacement is so cheap. Id hate to see you crash over that stupid gear.

eeeeky,

Thank you so much for the offer but I'm sure I'll pick one up before the ground thaws. It's so cold here I've given up on trying to get this bird in the air anytime soon and I'll just add the gear on to the next order.

Thanks again!
