Default Main gear strips

Hi guys,

I converted the MT to FBL (Beastx) with the standard head conversion. Since this conversion the MT strips the small main gear (three in a row) after spooling up.

Does anyone has an idea why?

Thanks

By small main gear do you mean the tail drive gear? Do you have a torque tube or belt drive on the tail? Does it happen as you're spooling up or in flight? Have you checked the distance between your motor pinion and the main gear using the "paper test" method? Do you have any pics of the drive system you can post? How hot is your motor after spooling up / landing?

Hate to answer your question with more questions but the more we know the better ;-)

Hi,

thanks for your help. I fly with the belt version. I've lowered the belt tension and flew three pack today. Hopefully this was the cause.

regards,
