I'd buy two or three sets.

test went well,i have a total of 7 hard runs,27 turn motor,stock prop,2s lipo battery,20 mins per run...almost no wear on the gears.
considering you cant buy these gears anywhere....i think the price is more than fair.
in about 1-2 mths ill be taking orders for gears.my guy can handle 5 sets per mth at the moment.i just paid in advance for 4-5 sets.ill keep 1 set,sell the rest.
ill be honest....right now im paying $26 per set,selling for $30 a set.in 2 mths price will rise up to $35 per set...my cost.gear maker stated cheap price now because they are prototype gears.once gears are proven ....rise in price for production.

pic of gears after 7 hard runs,which included start and stops,plenty cavitation.


video of torture test.
