Hi Milton,

The problem with your question is in the definition of the word "best". Each R/Cer has their own priorities like, size, weight, cost, durability, power loss, ease of mounting, and, longevity.

Each application has various gearboxes that work better than others. Some are more cost-effective than others so the choice can often rely on the overall project (i.e. foamie ARF vs. scratch-built scale model, or, offset vs. in-line).
