Gordie, outside of this thread, theres been more than one failure of the new tail...I have followed most of the threads about it, there is something "up" here.

until the problem(s) with the new box have been pinpointed, I thought maybe some people might like to know more about old box unless there is another alternative.

it's just a suggestion.

Anyone interested..
Anyone that wants to exchange their new gear box (regardless of gear color) for a well built, fully functional metal one, assembled last July, can send me a PM..
I am not a trusting soul, so you have to send me yours first.. I am on the good guy list a couple of times..

Maybe there have been a very small number of failures of the new box, but what about the old box. The old box did fail for sure that's a fact.
Mostly due to poor servicing, but that's still a failure.

I think you guys are loosing sight of what can fail here.
Most any heli can have a catastrophic failure at some point, whether it's down to manufacturing error, poor design or poor construction - It's just happens.

If 30% of all the open tails are failing, then sure I'd start to worry, but as it stands I have 99.9% confidence it that gear box, and that's the same confidence level I have in any heli component I've built, flown and cared for. How many times do you hear on here of all the failures on all and any make of heli - of Jesus bolts failing, torque tubes letting go, heads departing, tails blades being thrown not to mention main blade failure.... The list goes on and on. "Shjt Happens"

Just for some perpective.
A fellow flyer had a tail failure of the tail gear on his vigor this week. The gears (they are metal) just looked to be in the same bad shape as the one for the open tail on the first thread of this post.
All Heli will fail at one point or an other due to mechanical and/or pilot failure. It is part of the hobby!!!
We have come a long way in the quality and durability of the machines but now we expect them to be fail safe?
I know we put money into it, but if you expect not to crash them, which is inevitable, don't fly them
Youngblood says in is book that if you don't crash you are not trying, and that the likelyhood of a crash is proportional to the money you put in the machine,. This has been proven many time
But it is still the best ratio fun per hour for the $ when compare to many other activities. Our hobby is cheap
Lets keep it fun
