Anyone know where to get a replacement gear for my Bladerunner?

I have one of the older-model BR's, with the tailrotor.
It's been sitting on my shelf for about six months, ever since one of the double-gears connecting the motor pinion to the rotor gear flew off and disappeared.
Anyone know where to get another one of these?

The hard part is keeping it from happening again with the new gears. I eventually gave up on my BR after neither epoxy nor superglue could prevent the pin from flying out. Maybe you'll have better luck.

If the gear pin doesn't fit well in the mounting hole, you can scarf up the surface of the pins with a couple of pliers. The pins are made of aluminum, and as such, are easy to deform with the teeth of the pliers.

Just a thought

Aloha, Steve

Allen : Sorry about forgetting you. When my cabin went south, so did my computer, and I haven' gotten my bookmarks all back in place yet. I marked your url, so from now on I can plug you, as well as your competition. I'm surprised how many people have no idea that BR parts even exist, much less know where to get them

.

Aloha, Steve
