Guys,
I bought a bevel gear set from RCHover (excellent service by the way), the bevel gears came pre-mounted on the tail shaft and on a carbon tail rotor drive shaft. I want to use Todd's (sparrow products) alu tail rotor drive shaft, does anyone know the easiest way to remove the plastic bevel gear from the carbon drive shaft so I can mount it on the alu version - without damaging it ?

I would like to know as well. Is it possible to remove the bevel gear from the carbon drive shaft? Is it press fitted or glued on? I bought my bevel gear as part of a replacement carbon drive shaft and it came with the gear fitted.

I placed the carbon shaft in a hole in my wire stripper and tapped the shaft with a center punch and hammer. Didn't take much force, was probably pressed on.

Glue the gear to the metal shaft with a little CA.

you guys must have been reading my mind. I'm also using the Sparrow products aluminum drive shaft with the blue bevels. The drive shaft originally came with a metal pinion that I was able to take off by heating the shaft with a soldering iron and pulling the gear off with some pliers. The blue bevel was a really tight fit onto the aluminum drive shaft so I figured it would be ok. So I thought until yesterday. The blue bevel broke free of the drive shaft and I had to make a quick landing. Luckily I wasn't that high up and was able to recover with out any damage.
I was also wondering how I should secure the blue bevel to the drive shaft, should I use some epoxy or just a drop of CA. Well I guess that question has been answered as well so I don't need to inquire about it now.

Thanks guys

Gdog,

I used CA with the blue bevels and sparrow shaft and works great. Just be ready to shove it on as fast as possible, it sets up extremely fast. I held the blue gear down on table and shoved it on until the shaft is even with the end of the bevel gear where it stops on it's own anyhow.
