Metal T/R gears (as mentioned above).
A titanium T/R drive shaft (like the one Fung is going to make someday).

Didn't Fung had the Metal T/R on production. Seems the tail's giving Zoom and Shogun pilots lots of probs. Would anyone like LED kinda stuff on the zoom?

What's already been mentioned metal or nlyon t/r gear, better tail drive shaft and some better made CF main blades. Alunimium tail gearbox, Alunimium tail pitch control lever. Longer CF Tail Fin to get the rotors from striking the ground.

The MJP Carbon CF vertical tail fin is longer than stock by 1/2" from the boom mount to the lower tip to protect the T/R.

MJP may want to put that on the site. Only thing it gives for information is:

Details:
Lightweight carbon fins, stiffer than stock
Cut from 1mm carbon fiber

May want to add the following
1/2" Longer then the stock vertical tail fin

Buy the HoverUp/MJP carbon tail fin mod. I pays for itself quickly and looks great. Also keeps you flying!
