it's a shame hitec won't just sell a dozen of them instead of buying a gear set to get one. half the time it's that stupid plastic gearplanned obsolescence I'm thinking

I think the purpose of the plastic gear is to prevent damage to the servo itself, sort of like a fuse in av electrical circuit. Cheaper to replace the gears than the whole servo, although it would be better if you could buy just a bag of the plastic gears separately. I may be mistaken but it seems like I vaguely remember reeding that you can get them, but I don't remember where. Of course this could have been another manufacturer other than Hitec.

Seems like an excellent idea to have that "fuse" gear, as long as replacements are plentiful and cheap, which doesn't seem to be the case

Well that didn't go well,out of the two HS65's I tried to fix with new gears,one is burnt out and the other has no movement at all.Oh well,back to the MG14's I think,cheap and cheerful.

repairability testing

some days ago I flew my grey mxs in quite strong wind, approx 15-20 mph, and was practicing some sort of stationary rolling harriers, after some minutes of flight I wondered how such a nice flying model was built

due to the big canopy I often had the opportunity to study the fuse structure, but I never had a chance to have a look at the inside of the wing, I was really curious about it and decided to open the wing immediately.

I didnīt want to waste time, thus I combined the landing and the disassembly in one step and separated the wingtip from the left wing, I landed about 50 meters away from my position because the soil there was more suitable for such precise operation..........pics tell the rest of this story, enjoy

5min epoxy everywhere, the carbon strips are 60mm long, thin strips are positioned directly above and below the ply spar to reinforce it

This is hilarious...

especially the ending. I'm not trying to hijack the thread. Just thought everyone would enjoy a good laugh today. It is a riot. It even had my wife rolling. Single guys, don't bother. It won't have the same effect.

Enjoy,

Alec

P.S. Have your wife watch it with you, if you're man enough!
