Default Tail gears slipping

Here I go again, someone help me. I solved my gyro problems in another post and was flying great. Now the two red gears in the rear housing are not engaged. Anything I can do to tighten the connection? I looked at the gears tonight they are worn but not broken. Or should I just go to the belt drive. I don't mind spending the money.

Hi Ross,
In my experience, once the tail rotor case bolt has been tightened, the boom gets dented which makes future adjustments difficult. Because the tail rotor case wants to return to this previously established position. I have the Ballistic Technologies TR belt drive kit and I am very happy with it. Well over 75 flights no problems. Hope this helps.

I agree with beaner. I have 2 120's, one with a belt drive and the other without. I'm ordering a 2nd belt drive today because I'm tired of the same problem you're experiencing. If I have a particularly bad landing (I"m still learning) and my tail gets a bend, I don't have to worry about striped gears. Same holds true if the tail blades catch on some high grass and stop the rotation for a moment.
