I have a V200d01 which I think is basically a good heli but I have had terrible problems with stripping teeth off the main gear and also the small bevel gears that drive the tail.
The gears seem to be quite soft material. Is there an upgrade that anyone is aware of to tougher gears.
Also, is a belt driven tail available, and is this a good option.

Hi Moosegrey, yes the V200D01 is a nice 4 ch. heli. once you master the controls the soft gear problem will become a non issue. When I first started flying mine I could replace the gears in about 15min. and be back in the air. A very stable FBL heli. good learning curve to 6ch's. Don't know of any better gears available, but never really looked for any. I would leave the tail as is, not sure if belt kit is available but IMO I think the torque tube tail is more stable and less maintaince. Hope this helps. Lane

I have a V200D03 and it could certainly use a main gear with heavier teeth. Be sure to have an extra on hand.
