The tail box is a metal open tail cased box, not plastic.

Meant that the gears a plastic. OK Delrin then. Nothing against that really just seems pricey to me.

FAI - 3D open box
The differences in the gear boxes is the side that the tail rotor will be located.
The FAI box will have the tail rotor on the right side.
The 3D box will have the tail rotor on the left side.

The gears in the box are 1 to 1 ratio, same as the current gear boxes.

Delrin is a plastic. There are thousands of different types of material that can be used to make the gears. The mix that is being used is custom for high speed, high strength gear appllications.

What you may have heard is that the gears are molded, and that is true.

Wingtip,

I'd heard that the gears were molded as well, not machined due to cost?

I ordered one and I'm still waiting on it. I like it because you can see how the tail gears are wearing, and you dont have to use the $12.00 an ounce grease any longer.
No more oozing out of the tail outputshaft bearing !

Ease of Maintenance is why I'm getting it, and I will get a second for my other fury as soon as funds are available

If you want to see for yourself how the box holds up to SEVERE abuse, visit Miniature's web-site and check out the footage of the testing.

The gears withstood sand being poured into them at RPM and they stayed intact. A wooden 2"X4" was put into the spinning blades without any gear damage (output shaft and blades were toast though) as well as a rag thrown into the tail. The box/gears also withstood 9 hours of full lock to lock pitch changes (very abrupt) without incident. I witnessed the 2"X4" test myself, quite impressive. I don't think this unit has a problem with failure

A few Miniature pilots are trying to tear them up as we speak. Matt Botos and HC were flying them at Mulberry this past week end. Both pilots were flying through the roof and the boxes held up without incident. There are others being flown as well.

The boxes will be shipping very soon. I personally do not know a date.

Hope this helps!

Open Tail Box
The open tail rotor box is a great idea because it eliminates the
grease leak issue and most likely reduces friction and tail weight.
The video on Miniatures Website is testimony to the fact that
it can take some major abuse and continue unscathed. I saw them put to the test at Mulberry and if it can survive that kind of flying, I'm convinced its tough and durable.

There goes that rumor that it won't hold up under fire.

Enjoy

I hope they will release it soon, it seems they tend to tell us about new products a little too far in advance, then everyone gets frustrated waiting on the release. Even accepting orders on the web site like they are available when in fact they are not... Just an observation, you should always try and keep happy customers

The open gearbox rocks! Man it's nice. Even my brotha Cortez Jenkins Put my chopper through some torture. I think he could tell a huge difference in the tail.
