I'm sure you have other micros that would benefit....

Would be great if there was a new pinion source -- like BSD (who does have 10-teeth pinions).

GWS Micro Gear Puller:

It's really starting to let me down.

The small soft brass SP pinion is sliding through the base slot.
That slot is just a little over sized for the SP stock pinion gear.

Any experience out there with the Walkera Silver GP?

I have both and for what you are doing the Walkera one will work better.. Funny that for working on Walkera motors the GW/GP-MICRO works better..

Thanks lb,

I'll get one ordered.

As for now, MacGyver to the rescue.

Old saw blade with a dremel cutoff wheel slot cut into it.


If the pinion sits too close to the motor can this sweet needle nose plier pictured in pic#1 will easily slide the pinion to the top of the motor shaft.

Re,

My GWS puller was great for about the first 30 motors.

Did your motor show up yet?

Bud,

Just one...for now. I had a new P-51 motor just sitting around, so I put it in my Champ. XP #2 & 3, are still going strong on their original motors, and my V2 w/P-51 motor is still going. When they start to fade, I will definitely go with the SP motors (if I don't go b/l).

I am reminded of GNR's Mr Brownstone: "I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do it so the little got more and more."

Anyone have any RPM comparison data on the SP & XP motors?

Tower 9T pinion:
Shaft hole diameter: 2.5mm


I'm looking into pinion sources like this:
