Nice gears !!! I like that.

One question,

Now, two tail gears are strong enough not to break... So, I am wondering if the tail rotor is blocked in some way (like landing on the grass), what part would be broken instead? Tail shaft ? Just curious... Hope anything will not break...

Is this available for sale?

curlyQ2000, make these in large quantities, and sell them. You will have a market ;-)

I would think if the tail hits the grass the grass would be the first to give. And maybe mud also if your lucky enough. My tail is currently covered in grasss stains already

I actually think its asking a lot of a gear system to not break a few teeth if you really ding something. I would think it still might be possible to strip even the Ultem gears, but the chances I would think are far reduced as would be wear, which is one of the reasons I would like a set.

Are they molded or machined? If machined, is the tail gear 1 pc?
