Alum Gear Pitch: is 64P.

Servo Mount Plate: is a simple injection molded part that is concave on one side and flat on the other side. You can mount the servo plate with a strip of industrial double sided tape supplied, any way, on the boom's side, top or bottom near the rea of the frame. Servo and gyro both can be attached to this mount at 90 degrees with each other or in saddle like fashion if you use two servo mounting plates opposite each other.

Mario,
i got one of your MIA ally 10T pinions for my piccolo awhile ago and tested it. it worked ok but i think the piccolo's pitch is a bit coarser at .5 modul.
whereas it works perfect on the hornet whose pitch is .4 modul. so it must be that .4 modul equals 64P?

your comments on this?

We have just sold the last batch of alum pinions and are temporarily out of them.

More available to ship in two weeks. Sorry about this but they have been selling faster than we expected.

However, we are still taking backorders if you want to order the alum pinion gears along with other upgrade items which are in stock ready to ship.

Thank You.

Mario

I've had my Hornet for about a month now and am very happy with it.

The Hornet flies pretty well as-is. You might consider a metal mainshaft, as that appears to be the Achilles heel.

I found most of the mods on Brad's site useful:
http://www.alcita.com/bkg/hornet/

Beware of the rubber stopper on the main shaft though. I've had some near mishaps when the stopper slipped. I now fly with a small drop of CA to hold the plastic stopper and the rubber tube to back it up.

One other mod I'd add is to insert washers to center the flybar control arm such that the pushrods are centered in the head. Otherwise the flybar teetering will be asymmetric (or at least it was on mine).
