Source for a 5,6, or 7 to 1 Gear Box for a sp400?


I have had good results from 3.4:1, 10 700Mah NiMH, and 11X7 apc prop. I put the figures through MotoCalc and things really get good at around 5-7 to 1 with a bigger prop. The highest ratio box I can find is 4 to 1. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Rick

The highest I have seen in the shops is the Cosmotech (4.5:1). But listed in "Electric Flight Gearboxes" by Oliver Wennmacher are:
2-stage:
Conzelmann "Volksgetriebe", 5.4:1 and 4.3:1
Ludwig "CNC gearbox for 400 motors", 5.9:1 or less
Planetary:
Gross "Guppy", 6:1 or 5.29:1

I've no idea where these are available from. The author is from Germany, so I would try the mainland European distributors. The book is about 5 years old, so they might not still be around.
