AT700-MDGM07
Main Drive Gear, 164T, MOD0.7 for ALIGN T-Rex 550/600/700 Series Helicopters

  • $32.95

Overview

The new Main Drive Gear is precision CNC-machined from a proprietary Nylatron MoS2-Filled Type 66 Polyamide, one of the best materials available today for polymer gears and the perfect match for an extremely strong, smooth running, and durable power transmission. The gear is composed of 164 teeth, utilizing the metric MOD0.7 tooth profile standard for various stock ALIGN series helicopters. Through months of testing, the gear has been optimized to include numerous design features for optimum performance, including:

  1. The tooth involute profile has been optimized through numerous design iterations for increased tooth engagement and strength, providing an incredibly quiet and durable gear for a MOD0.7 power train.
  2. Weight was reduced through FEA optimizations of the machining pattern to significantly reduce weight, while maintaining full strength of a solid-gear profile.
  3. The self-lubricating properties of the proprietary MoS2-Filled Type 66 Polyamide material provides exceptional wear and noise properties, providing a gear that can withstand the harsh nature of hardcore 3D flight.

Note: Review the corresponding gear case installation diagram for correct installation procedure for optimal strength and longevity.
