From what I can figure from your post, yes a new gear set will more than likely fix the problem. Better yet get a whole new heli, it may be cheaper in the long run. I got one coming from Lightake.com for $20 postage included.

The postage makes a few parts cost more than a new S107.

Hmmmm.. You make a solid point. It's probably just better to buy a new heli...

since i'm in the market for a new heli would you recommend the s107 or one of these?
I kinda like the s107 and i love playing with modding these little guys... but four channels sounds soo fun... and same price range...

In my opinion I would stick to the S107. Since you have one already you would have spare parts available. The one you linked to looks unbreakable but it is not. I do not know how good those are or how well they fly.

Remember that removing flybar weights makes a heli very unstable, they are there for a reason and in my opinion the main cause of your crash.

Also I have heard others complain of having problems with AliExpress.

Others may have a different opinion but that is how it is. This is just my two cent's worth.

Too bad you do not know the real reason for the beach ball being in the net, it was there to keep the Bruins from playing with it and keep their mind on the puck.

And it worked didn't it?

As I read the headlines from the Boston Globe, our good Governor will not be attending the Bruins victory parade in downtown Boston today. He is spending the weekend in the Berkshires with his family. GOOD FOR HIM...I hope he stays there until the end of his term. I can't believe my wife voted for this idiot not once but, twice His name is Deval Patrick...I simply call him the friggin' Devil OH, BTW, he and the other idiot (our commander in chief Obama) are a-hole buddies Another idiot my wife voted for Do you think she has bad taste in men or what......please, no comments from the peanut gallery

Mike.

I wish someone could tell me, why Obama even accepted the presidency, considering that from day one he never had a chance to do anything BUT loose, no matter what he would decide during the course of his term ....

So how did it feel to get your head back in the clouds? Must be a nice feeling.

Mike has had his head up there since the Bruins won, just watch out for it as he can be hard headed.
