I have a Trex-550 FBL that came with the 3G unit. Are there any after market main gears that I may be able to use as a replacement? The stock unit is a 170T gear.

Does anyone have any other tips for after market parts. I already replaced the tail push rod with a carbon fiber rod, changed the canopy mounts with Quick Change Canopy Mounts that are awesome and installed a Talon 90 esc.

TIA,
Andy

Thank you. They seem to have some nice products. I may be getting a little anal but I'd like to spruce the heli up a bit and there doesn't appear to be too many options. Time to buy a new one but it's so damn cold out lately. I don't mind flying when it's above freezing but when it gets below freezing it's hard to keep warm just moving my thumbs around

Yeah, they have awesome stuff. Its hard to strike the right balance of being picky and enjoying the heli sometimes.

I have the Trex 700E main gear in my Trex 550. I also have a 3rd bearing block. Has worked really good so far.
