I love the way this thing flies - I have to remind myself it's not a 450 because it flies so stably and goes exactly where I tell it to go - but the A gear durability is keeping me from flying my favorite bird.
The metal A gear is a must. I went through four of the plastic gears in a short time. The metal A gear has eliminated that issue. Just make sure the metal A gear clears the FET on the elevator servo board.
