Hello all:

Does anyone out there (or here, rather) have any experience with the stock 600E setup and the Align helical gear/pinion set? If so, please expound on your observation(s) regarding the setup (i.e. side load problems, broken motor shafts, noise related issues, performance variations, etc...). Thank you for your time and input.

I have flown the stock setup for years and never had a problem. I also would like to know why Align makes the helical conversion and exactly what the benefits are. The main reason I never tried it was because I thought that it would put more stress on the bearings but I might be wrong.

I currently run the helical setup (6S until yesturday) and can definately say it's a LOT quiter, and I can put the mesh a lil tighter. Others have said it's supposed to be more efficient but I can't tell either way.

WATCH OUT!!!!!!!!

Helical gears are quieter than normal "spur" gears as is normally supplied with heli kits. There is always more than one tooth engaged and transfering power therefor the load per tooth is reduced. The downside of helical gears is they produce end thrust and this requires a thrust bearing to carry this load. Alternatively, double helical gearing could be used, this eliminates the end thrust but manufacturing costs go up.

I think..!!

I hears somewhere that the helical gear was introduced to try and stop the gear from stripping on auto restarts and higher rpm more powerful motors.

They are quieter as well
