Default CAN someone help me

while assembling my shogun I started to mess with the throttle (I couldn't wait to see the blades spin) IT started up without warning and in reaction I grabbed the tail rotor in a tight fist. The result is both tail gears stripped to nothing! My question is how do I replace the gears do I have to DISassemble the entire tail rotor? I know that the one towards the front probably requires the removal of the motor, but the tail gear I dont see it coming loose, even after taking most og it off. Do I need to take off those tiny screws that hold the case where the gear goes?

Ha, I did the same thing two weeks ago. Dont worry, taking apart the tail is a breeze. All you have to do is loosen the 4 screws in front that hold the boom in place. Thats where the pinion and carbon shaft meet. Unscrew your linkage by the tail rotor. And finally unscrew the tail gear case. Its held in with 5 tiny screws. Do yourself a favor and buy upgraded sealed bearings!!! They will save you a lot of tail rotor headaches! I know trust me, I went through a $30.00 steel gear to learn that the stock one is fine if assembled correctly. Let me know how it goes
