Default help. need information about pinions


well im going to buy an align 430 with castle creations phx 25 for my dragonfly 60.
but the motor does not come with a pinion
i want to buy a pinion seperatly but am confused with the whole pitch thing.

i had bought a 48pitch steel pinion before for my dragonfly 36 (i had the walkera 180 brushless) but the teeth were differnt(2 small) and they totally destroyed the main gear..
im certain the gearing for the dragonfly 36 and 60 are the same so i dont know weither the 48 pitch was wrong or that steel pinions have differnt teething.
usualy the pinions for the walkera brushless are made out of brass.

so basicaly i want to know what kind of pitch/pinion will i need to work with my dragonfly 60?

thank you
