i also discovered on disassembling the BH mechanics, on closer inspection, it wasn't my head speed being too high which caused my gear drive to grind out, it was one of the supplied alloy bearing blocks. the machined hole that the bearing sits in was badly machined, it looks like it was made by a drunk, and even with bearing glue i can still easily pop the bearing out. this bearing popped out during the vibrational stage of spool up.

i have asked RC Aerodyne to replace the entire system for me. ie, entire gear drive set, bearing blocks, bearings, vertical drive and its brass cog, which is also very poor as far as manufacturing goes. its made of the softest metal, brass, and the thread in the grub hole strips when you apply pressure when tightening.

pretty unimpressed. i hope they replace it.
