Great Service, Great Gear

I have X-Gear, and X-Fuse on two slow sticks. They are absolutely great. Not only do they add strenghth to the sticks, but have matching colors to add to hoe the sticks look. The X-Gear with super light 3" wheels/tires makes the smoothest landings I ever had.

I had to call Millennium RC, and James answered on the first ring (no overseas, can't speak English here). He answered all my questions, gave me advise, and sent out a part I needed the same day. Best service I had in a long time (not since the 60's).

I will be doing more business with Millennium RC!

I just built one of these for the first time. It is not as easy as it looks but then I used regular CA so i had to go fast especially on the parts that slide on. One thing I did notice is that the gear does not tighten on the aluminum stick so I will put some tape around the stick to shim it out a little.

axle working loose...

First... I really like the X-gear and have a bunch of these. Now for the issue. I built the axle assemblies per instructions and it has worked fine for a couple years now. But, now the assembly is separating around the axle screw and the wheel is bending up giving the wheel unwanted camber. I don't land hard, but I do fly off grass sometimes. Anyone got any ideas on how to fix? I thought of wrapping thread around the joint and putting epoxy on it. But that may not be enough.

Remove the axle screw, cleanup and ruff up the surfaces, glue and clamp. Let it dry over night. Redrill the axle hole with 1/8 bit. Add 2 washers and an extra nut so that the two washers clamp the bottom of the X-Gear.

Hope this helps,

James

gear fix

Thanks James...

I find that ca is brittle and is'n't holding long term. Would something like acetone or testors model glue be better?

Testers and acetone do not work well on Nylon. Are you using poly blended CA Glue? Did you scuff-up the surfaces before you glued them?

I have had gear last more than two years.

I need to read this thread from the start. I'm sure I built the last set wrong want to do this set correct. But what is poly blended CA glue? Also can you post a jpeg of the washer placement you were talking about?

I'm not sure what poly blended ca is. I'm using Mercury brand ca. Yes, I did scuff up the joints before applying the glue.

Here are a few links for Poly blended CA. Although Mercury Adhesives are great for gluing wood, I have tested them on the ABS Nylon blend plastic used in X-Gear and found them to not bond well at all. So for this application, I do not recommend them. However I like to use Mercury Adhesives on my balsa builds.

BSI is my number one choice for gluing X-Gear.
I have tried their IC-2000, INSTA-FLEX+ and MAXI-CURE and they all work well.
