Folks,

Received some nice CNC aluminium pulleys for my Eco 8.
-
Stock (wobbly) plastic ones have been fine for past 9 years, and belt appears to be in really good shape, despite many hours of flying.
-
So...... I am deliberating as to whether to even bother fitting the ali ones, as I am concerned that they may wear the belt much more quickly.
-
Please comment if you can.-
Many Tks, Steve

I've only seen aluminum pulleys cause problems if the edges of the teeth are rough or sharp. If machined correctly they should not cause any more wear than the plastic ones.

Hundreds of flights on my raptors with aluminum pullys and guides with no belt issues.

Hundreds of flights on my 3 Eco 8s, all have aluminum pulleys. The stock plastic pulleys caused a lot of vibration on mine.
