Any fix for the sliding main gear issue?
I added a washer and a drop of CA. Works like a charm:

Now that thats glued it will just cause damage elsewhere then what. The gear is meant to slide down and isn't a big project to reseat. If it's slipping down all of the time replace it.mSR,120SR,mCPx SR(DDVP),TTe325 Spektrum

WRONG!
The gear needs to be glued on.

I've been flying two different MCPXs for two months now, absolutely THRASHING them and I learned early on that the gear MUST be glued on. It will not cause damage elsewhere (as I also assumed it would). It also doesn't strip out either, another surprise. Eventually, with enough thrashing it will wear out but it takes an amazing beating.

Glue your gears on!

Not disputing what you are saying but why 'MUST' the gear be glued on, you didn't give a reason as to why?
My main gears have never moved in flight, only when the heli has had an accident which is no big deal?

Dozens of crashes. No damage anywhere else and no sliding either.It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

Got sick of my gear constantly slipping. If yours isn't slipping then I guess you don't need glue!

hi
i'm a total noob at heli's and the msr was my first real heli, i got the mcpx about 2 weeks after. i had to wait a couple of weeks for the dx6i to show up.
when i started to fly the mcpx i couldn't stay in the air longer than about 30 seconds and off would come the main gear. i've read all the threads trying to learn how to fly and what to do. but long story short i almost tossed the mcpx and radio in the trash because all i was doing was putting the main gear back on after every little bump.
i put a little drop of CA on the gear / shaft and i've been flying and banging that thing into everything in my yard and my neighbors yard. you just can't imagine how hard i've been on this thing and it still fly's with no vibration / wobble. perfect right out of the box.
i can imagine guys that fly the way this heli is supposed to may never have the problems i've had but if you crash a lot like i do don't feel bad about glueing the main gear on and never worry about it again. eventually i'll need to replace everything on the main shaft anyway but at least i get to fly the thing now. when i replace all the parts i may have enough experience not to need to glue the main gear on but for now i needed it to stay put so i could fly and spend less time working on it.
by the way i also put a little hot glue across the link guides so the links don't go away. i got tired of replacing those also in every crash.

good luck
rob

1+ for a drop of CA on the main gear. Best (and easiest) mod you can do. Just remember to hit throttle hold if you go out of control before you crash.Avant RC

Would it be possible to construct a small collar to fit on the main shaft (bottom end) to prevent the main gear form slipping ?
