Hi Guys,
Replaced the bevel gears once now and thought I had them shimmed pretty good but they only lasted about a two minute hover and went again. Now the second set ordered from QWW are somewhere in mail limbo land for the last 7-8 weeks but once they come in, whats the trick to shimming them?? Is there anywhere else to order parts for this heli other than QWW directly as I am getting a little frustrated with them? I am up near Ottawa Canada so there is no LHS that carries the parts.

Hello,

The post office tells us the gears left the USA and are in Canadian customs. The main concern when setting the mesh on the bevel gears is getting them to be smooth and also being sure when you look carefully at the mating mesh that the tip of each gear is in line with the other. The mesh may feel ok, but one gear can be engaged moreso than the other and that will throw it out of alignment. Just be sure that both gears are coming together equally.

Sounds good. I will make sure this time, not that it is that hard to get them just perfect its the loss of control of the helicopter that is scary. Oh and if possible could U throw in some extra shims with this shipment? Thanks Jon and sorry for being a pain in the butt!!
