My MiniTitan ARF went on a Pirouette crash and I found out that there are no teeth on the Tail Drive Gear.

WOW. You wouldnt think a belt could ware that gear out. Isn't that gear metal? How many flight do you have on it? Try losening the belt up next time, it might be to tight.

So the rubber belt wore out the plastic gear or was that a mold defect? Heck, I have only flown it here and there for setup and this crazy ARF started to pirouette on me! Say I did not make a mistake buying this model.

From the photo it looks like there were never teeth on there to begin with.
I can't see them ever coming off, perhaps wearing and rounding off but not like that.

Yeah, the picture looks to clean for the gears to have broken off. Looks like you got a defective part and it didn't wear out.

Serious are you going to bother for a $12 part? If your keen take it back to wherever you got it from.
Me, I wouldn't bother i'd just order a new one unless i got it from LHS

You are very right! But I am also PISSED to have bought an ARF with missing parts and now a defective part. I bought an ARF to fly it straight out instead I find myself ordering upgrades here and there and waiting instead of flying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YEAH I AM SERIOUS THAT SOMEONE BETTER GET IT FIXED OR TRASH IT!
