Preventive Maintenance - Gears
How many flights are typical before gears should be replaced? This is for both main and tail, all of the white plastic gears.

I am flying a 550 FBL with 3GX. The gears are showing even wear, and running smoothly after 300 flights. I realize it depends on a number of factors, but it would help if people can share how many flights they have achieved on a set of gears, or which ones fail first (I assume that would be the main gear).

Thanks for any comments.

when the they break.
I have never changed because of wear. I usually reduce the gears to their elemental state first

LOL, thanks Jim. I will replace mine one flight before they would break.
