I think this is down to Align to find a definite cure,they designed the model in the first place so should be best placed to figure out the real cause and rectify it.

Hopefully they will get wind of this thread and that certain bodges are not curing it and potentially ruining an otherwise good helicopter.

I seem to have a different problem to every one else , if I push my tail hard into the wind , nose to the right , I some times times get an awfull gear slipping noise.

Theres not alot of evidence on the gears , but im sure the force of the tail is spreading the frames .

I dont think better quality gears will help , as it seems like the frames are flexing .

The extra bearing my be the fix but I would like to see a longer main shaft made , dont like the look of the extension method , but it is a step in the right direction.

Happy you did not take it seriously
I'm testing it as well and trying to find the solution not for reason to sell, but in a lavish or enthusiastic manner. Somewhere the reason of problem and solution to cure it is for sure. Now we need to wait till I burn 5 liters of gasoline.

Thats not true. Mine are holding perfect for the last 10gal. No signs and wear...
3rd bearing block below maingear protect´s against frame twist. My trex700 has burned over 100liter total, and the only issue i had was the maingear problem, and that is fixed completly..

payne1967..
Some others had issues with the plastic clutch bearingblock, that has been compressed so the bearing´s get loose. Check your pinion that drive the maingear. There must only be a hair of tolereance in between.
If pinion feels loose, you might have problems with your plastic bearingblock.
Also, check your maingear. If you can see the upper toth wearing flat on maingear, you have frame twisting like i had.. You can see my pictures from the Helifreak link i posted early in this topic.

Hope you will get your problems solved..

Mines still going strong at this stage after about 3 or 4 gallons. We also don't have the breaking links down here.....is it something to do with the temperature? Don't seem to have many reports at all of gears stripping in NZ.

Man I cant believe people can strip these gears so easily. I know quite a few of the guys, including me, who have the TREX 700 with electric conversions and I am pretty darn sure we have more torque, and power than the nitro guys...way more None of use can strip the gears unless we loose a bearing in the motor or the motor mount screws come loose.

Is it an alignment issue thats causing the gears to strip...its definitally not a strength thing because they take the abuse from electric motors.

honestly main gear qulity is poor and and looser for nitro and when you converate to electrical of course you will use 10T pinion and this is less mesh than stock 20T so the chance of stripping may happen from first flight .and for nitro may from 10 -15 flight for gasser from 40 -60 flight because in gasser use big pinion and low head speed .

Is there any definate fixes/advances for this problem yet?I have just stripped one of the version 1 gears on my 700 but i had some up/down play on the gear which won't have helped.

There seems to be some speculation that it doesn't happen in warmer climates.Well they have tyre warmers in Formula 1,perhaps the answer is for Align to make some temperature regulated gear warmers that can be used pre flight powered of a 1900mA Lipo
Hell they could even call them the Align 2 in 1 gear regulators
