Default What gearbox for my Mega 16/15/3???


I have a spare Mega 16/15/3 motor that I am wishing to use in a Jaro Muller Mini Ellipse - E, but I am looking for a strong suitable gearbox in the ratio of 3.3:1 to swing a 12 x 8 prop. I have a MP Jet 3.3:1 gearbox BUT I am having problems with the motor pinion gear that is wearing down a bit too quickly for my liking . I like the Maxon gearboxes but I am having problems finding a 3.3 gearing in one and if so who sells them ???? I have found a Cermark 3.3:1 planetary gearboxes that might be ok. Has anybody have experience with the Cermark gearboxes?? As well as the Cermark boxes I was looking at getting a Permax gearbox that is used on their inrunner brushless line, UNTIL I found out that my LHS wanted AU$140 for one . Does anybody know of any overseas hobby shops that might have the Permax gearboxes (mainly in the USA).

Additionally to the mentioned gearboxes can anybody suggest a suitable gearbox for my application?
