I'd have to say it probably depends on the helicopter and your flying skill. I have a Century Hummingbird 3D Pro. It comes with a shaft drive which works well until you hit something with the tail blades. The crown gear strips very easily. Once changed to a belt drive that problem goes away. I think it is a little smoother with the belt drive but I think current draw is a little higher depending on belt tension. I don't have any other helicopters to compare though. Well, I have a Blade CP but that doesn't count as it has a motor driven, fixed pitch tail rotor.
