Titan se whats going on TT what you doing about it
I have come across the problem that most guys have with the titan se main gear is been slowly been eaten because of a cheap parts used,it started today after the 3rd flight the grey dust all down the side of the frames,this would be real bad if sucked through the carb,is TT doing anything about,is there other new parts to fix this problem,thanx.

I think they must have had a bad run of weak gears, we have club member that's on his 2nd gear . I have one Titan SE showing some wear on the main gear but not bad enough to change it yet but it had a bunch of hard flights on it .Pop Pop the blades !!!!!Oh what a feeling 3D Flying can be

I do not think its the pinion but just weak gears , If it looked OK I would fly it , I would not worry about the carb injesting it as its turning outward to the outside .Oh what a feeling 3D Flying can be

From what I have read on another forum they are different, But you could try ElyQ vision competition gears or the 8.7:1 option gears if you don't mind the change in ratio!
On two of my raptors I run the TT option main gear with the ElyQ pinion which will accept the TT pinion bearing block and seems to mesh better!
My stock Titan SE on the other hand has about 50 odd flights (odd in more ways than one lol) of aggressive flogging with no sign of the gear issue so I can't measure the gears for any discrepancy so I don't know what the deal is there!
