because sometimes you need more trust by wind gusts or by pilot error and its nice to know you do not shredded your gears just by saving your bird.
So I really hope that the better gears will fit in the already existing (and build in) gear boxes.
The 6s warning not from me , it is from Heliastxx . they post it in the products . But the 700 bigger gear is really take out all the risk . sure reliable . so i will upgrade fast , i will offer you the upgrade parts even you have installed , it is big work . and not big different change . especial the tail raise gear box , size will be same . Just another side piece gear box not in a same straight line , it will move aside a very little 1-1.5mm not effect so much ! it is easy for you .
