This upgrade will consist of a total of 6 bevel gears, as we found that the original align bevel gears will fail too, no just the two in the 140deg box, but also the two ninety deg bevels on the tail rotor shaft and the 2nd stage gear. The set will also include new shafts, shim washers and installation hardware. Will keep you posted.

That is very good news Michael, do you in this time know the cost for all of us that has purchased the older gears, after being in contact with Heliartist i got the feeling that the upgrade will be free for customers who bought the Tiger fuse but cant say that with shure?
