Why so expensive, £25.99? It's $26.99 on the micro heli site which equals £18.00. They would get a trade discount and the postage / taxes would not be £8.00 per gear? That equals nearly $40 a price increase of $13.

Just asking.

Tried the gear this weekend and it was well worth the money,...tried everything i could to make it let go and it just stayed with it!, seemed to run much smoother too than with the standard gear.

I can see where your coming from with the price but for it's performance results it has been well worth it's money in my book, and with todays economic climate with 15% vat, + 9% import duty + shipping... Its easy to see why it is the price it is!

A similiar gear for say a synergy which is also machined are £29.35.

Personally i don't think you can get better than a CNC machined gear but you do pay for the privilege.

Looking forward to beating on it some more if the weather hold this weekend!

Cheers!

At that price it doesn't make me want to rush out and buy one.

How wide are they? Have they increased it from the original 10mm?

For me it's been more than worth it's money, standard main gears are £12.13 for two and i did two in a weekend's flying.

To be quite honest i did'nt check it's size just fitted it and charged up ready for next days flying! Will check and post back!

Cheers!

I placed a MicroHeli order the other day for the 700N gear. The site says they are now shipping the next batch on 1/26, this coming Monday.

Got the new main hear in the mail today. It's substantially more beefy in design, a lot more "meat" in the center of the gear. I measured the gear that came in my kit, 10mm in width, the MicroHeli CNC gear is 12mm so they did make them a little wider. The quality on the CNC machining is top notch, I could not find any flaws.

Yes it is much stronger than the stock gear and best of all they are very precise and round. The stock gear is having problem with roundness. Where they are round it is ok, but somewhere on the gear that is not round, it will cause problem with gear mesh. With electric power, it will cause much more problem. CNC main gear from MicroHeli is a top notch ones. I wish they make 1M one.

Got mine yesterday. Agree with Anthony L's comments. This gear looks WAY more robust than the standard item.
It's heavier too - mine weighs around 80g. Don't know what the standard gear weighs but it feels like the MicroHeli one is about twice the weight

I am curious to see if this is really the solution to the problem or if it is something else.

If you want to avoid stripping : run the new Align cold weather main gear, or remove the collar screws on the engine/clutch stack and tighten up the mesh and replace the collar screws with regular 10 mm cap bolts and thick washers with regular stock main gear.

Life is meaningful flying helis.

I dont understand this 'cold weather' crap. We've got 700's stripping main gears in 100f heat here in Australia so you can rule out the cold weather being the issue.

this microheli gear is pretty awesome but it will probably do some good damage in a crash wont it????

that is if you dont hit throttle hold in time...
