Hi

e-rc seems to stock quite alot of futaba spares, could be worth trying them.

Ripmax ARE useless aren't they...

Our last update on the gearset situation indicated that they would be in 'a couple of weeks'. In the meantime our advice to Futaba fliers is to avoid 'tail first crashes'

Sounds similar situation to the servo case problem I had a couple of months back.. I'd be willing to bet they still don't have any of those in stock either!

If all else fails in the UK, try http://www.helikraft.com they usually have them.

Of course it's the same one that breaks...
... seeing as it's got teeth the size of ant legs! In all my crashes over years of RC'ing, I've *never* busted a servo or a geartrain, except on the 9254 on my Raptor. What a rip-off, $10 for 3 gears you don't need, bundled with the crappy one that *will* break over 3 crashes for sure.

I'd rather pay the same $10 for a 4-pack of the one gear that breaks. And that's still 10 times what the price should be, but everyone's gotta make a living, I guess. But then, the guys at Futaba wouldn't laugh as hard, would they?

Bastages!

Ive just had exactly the same problem trying to get a gear set for a 9251 !!! absolute nightmare......nobody in the country has any, after waiting on Ripmax's bloody holding system for hours I was finally told "we're out of stock, should be some in january" !!!! I was then told by Ripmax that the 9253/4 plastic gears are the same as the plastic gears in a 9251 ??? hopefully this is correct as after more ringing around everywhere, I stumbled upon this post & to my surprise Revolution Models is the only place on earth that has any in stock so now I am just hoping that I didnt get crap info from Ripmax, and these gears will fit !!!.... otherwise I will then have to go through more searching to find somewhere that has a new 9251 in stock !!

Hi SQUID
I am still waiting for a reply from Rev models,as i have just got in from work,,the gears that i have killed is the very thin one,{christ only knows why they are that thin } and i have stripped the black lug as well ,,
RS I to have been told that the 9251 gear will fit,,but its a game if you cant get spares,i wont be impressed if i have to buy new servos every time i crash just because rip of ripmax cant ,or dont want toget there act together
AEERRRGGGGGG !!!!!!!!!
