whats up to all

so yeah im the guy that won the grand prize at ircha which if you didnt know was the 700 plus vcontrol , anyway i was out today hitting it hard and by no means am i all that but i can fly decently hard when all off a sudden pow no tail started to spin down it came on a forced auto, thankfully nothing else broke. now when looking at it i striped the tt gears in the front gear box . now is this a common thing or a fluke? any insight on this would be great
thanks
joe

Nice save.

I've got close to 100 flights on mine. No issues knock wood. And, I haven't heard of anyone else blowing out the gears.

I only adjusted the agility slightly from the box stock logo 700 preset. Did you raise any of the stop gains on the tail and/or do you do a lot of hard reversals? That can take its toll on any gear train.

if it ain't broke, break it.

700 tail

yeah nothing to hard i do do a lot of spinning on the tail i do some fast inverted pirouetting circles but i would not suspect that i wouldnt think but i do fly mostly nitro with one other electric which is the align 700 dominator so maybe just a fluke? i am super excited to have this heli flies solid precise fast i just dont want to have to auto this again that way lol

Tail gear failure again

Put in new gears 4 flights later while inverted stripped again in it goes could not save it this time there is definitely something wrong with the tt gears the bird is not in bad shape but definitely expensive to fix

Was it the front or rear set that went each time?

On my first 700, it happened twice and both times was the rear set in the tail case. My first was was during a piroflip. Managed to auto down and save that one. Second one went while inverted just doing a slow flip. Didn't have enough altitude and wrote it off that time.
Bought another kit and shimmed the crown gear in the tail case. Also started using DryFluid Gear. No issues since (~100 flights). <knock on wood>

Both times it was the front. I'll be quite honest with you it is a nice heli and I was getting used to it but that should not happen I fly align helis and my 700 dominator gets absolutely abused with no issue I baby this one and boom two times it blows the gears I believe there is something wrong especially with the first time being that the Mikado guys are the ones that built it they literally build these things all day so I don't know
