Well, to state reality I think I'm using a set of gears in my gearbox that is over 500 flights old. Generally speaking they last a LONG time if you are not damaging them from a crash and if you have a non-driven tail most cases you hit throttle hold before you go in they are not turning anyway to get damaged.

In about 1560 flights I've had to replace the tail gears once, maybe twice at most. (I know at least once, can't even think of a 2nd time).

The secret is to make sure its packed well with grease (for long life) and every so often just inject some more grease in there.

I also was wondering the same thing a few weeks ago. So I took it apart to inspect it. Gears looked fine. I relubed and put it back together. I have the plastic style gearbox. I am looking to maybe upgrading to a extreme style gear box in the future.

Why buy?? when you can borrow and no return
