What is this gear set all about? Is it harder to strip, more teeth for faster tail speed ... What does this do, I can't find any description for these parts?

They are made of a stronger material. The mesh is also a little tighter. So basicly they are an upgrade to the original gears.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

i actually was going to make a thread about these gears. a friend of mine has been having issues with his. the front tail gear, the one that meshs with the tail gear above the main gear. they seem to be made out of round and are not meshing properly. we have stripped two in flight and have now gone to slotting the frames to get the mesh tighter. the bevel gears are much nicer and I don't think they will strip unless you hit something. I think the white tail gear however is better made and meshes better.

Curtis made a post elsewhere, that said if you had a tight spot (which I did) then turn the gear 90 degrees. It helped out a lot.

these arent tight spots these are the gears are out of round and kind of mesh at an angle causing them to eventually strip

same issue here.... ... I can't 3d mine or it blows up..... I have used about 10 sets of gears both types.

needless to say crashing every other flight is a real pain....

yup, friend stripped 2 of the white sets and and now one black set and the black set is worse. he hasn't even gotten a chance to hard 3d, no hard piro reversals, no blurr piros. Mine are holding up well so far but i'm still using modified white gears. I think we're going to go back to the white gear that mates with the flat tail gear. We slotted the frames hoping maybe all it needs is a tighter gear mesh, because it's just rounding off the teeth.

yup, if you look at the black gears they appear to be out of round and don't mesh quite right with the stock black flat tail gear.

So how many people are having issues now? I just installed mine and haven't done any hard 3D yet, but should I be worried? I thought these gears were supposed to be better, thats why I bought them. Are you guys saying the white gears are better now? You do have your gears meshed right, right?

the black bevel gears are much better but a little tighter so need to break in. the issue me and my friend are having is the front black gear that meshes with the flat tail gear above the main gear.

The gear they are talking about is the lower flat gear that has the hex insert. Honestly that one is very durable even in the white plastic. It was just a part of the mold with the rest of the gears so we included it. But the black plastic does come out a little large than the white gears. This helps the bevel gears as they needed to be a little tighter. But, the flat gear might be a little tight. The easiest option is to just use the white gear there. It works fine. Also if yours is tight you can file the front boom clamp holes in the frames a tiny bit back and pull it back just a little. It should not take much.

For the person that said his was loose, I think something else may be going on. They certainly should not be loose. I believe you had problems, I am just wondering if something else is loose or mounted strange to cause the issue. Is the setscrew in the hex tight, or does the flat gear wobble badly on the shaft? Just trying to think of anything that might cause that.

Is the clamping bolt on the front clamp tight? If it is loose/stripped the clamp will not tighten properly and the gears will be loose. Also did you remove the washer from the slot in the front clamp? The clamp should not have the washer, it will be too loose with it and about right without it.

thanks curtis, i think you're right that the white gear with the hex insert is a better bet. also we got a couple more of the black gear sets and that gear seems to be better in these. The black bevel gears however are much nicer and have not stripped one yet.

Motoman450,

Yes, if the torque tube gear is rounding off them something is loose. Either the front tail boom clamp or the transition gear mount. Something is able to move allowing that gear to wear or melt. The clamping bolt or the washer issue I mentioned before might cause this.

I was having problems stripping the front small flat gear. I stripped out 3 of them before I enlarged the mounting holes in the frame so I could move the whole assembly in for a tighter mesh. I have only stripped the gear once since I tightened the mesh and every gear in the heli was stripped in that wreck
