Totally agree!! That Spur Gear really looked very bad! I never thought a piece of Nylon Spur gear can deform in that manner!!

In the morning, I am planning to run the Coast Guard Rescue Ship at the man made lake adjacent to my RC Club, Moon Port Modelers and this time I am installing the Garmin Geko GPS for Ground Speed measurements.

Stay tuned!
