M&M Aluminium tail gear box
Hi!

Does anybody know whether that aftermarket part was designed for the VIGOR tail or the differently designed VIBE tail???

Thank you very much for any comments.

They have the same tail gear box.

The less time I have the more I get done.

The Vigor CS and the Vibe "DO NOT" have the same tail gear box!! The Vigor CS uses a larger bearing on the tail drive gear from the drive shaft!
You will have to change these bearings to fit the M&M gear box, If you are converting the Vibe to the M&M gear box! Here is the link for the bearings that you will need.

Thank you guys for all your comments!

Hope to not loose my tail anymore with the M&M...

All the JR comments in their official bulletin "how to prevent from loosing it" were quite nice but...

Me and my friends on the field flying a VIGOR did what was explained and also a bit more...and the tail rotated or flew off again and again...

Going with the metal gear box should solve the problem, from what i understand that when you tighten the set screws into the plastic you need to use caution not to overtighten them or you can cause it to fracture and vibration can then cause the box to split and become lose.

To all interested in the aluminium tail gear box:

Nathan from Rick`s just mailed me that he is out of stock and that production is stopped.

Sorry for the bad news.

So now I have to make my decision. The Vigor Spare part or complete change to the original Vibe tail gear box. ???

Any thoughts there?
