Default front pinion gear heeelp!

OK,I got my 120 corona couple weeks ago.Of course I can't fly,but I'm learning and getting better.
Problem is I busted 3 front pinion gears and 2 crown gears.
What the heck am I doing or did wrong.I know that first 2 times it happened the tail hit something,but last time I was hovering pretty good(didn't hit nothing) and gears got striped again.Front pinion gear has like 2 teeth left on it.
Any input is welcome.

I can't imagine what would load a gear in steady flight to strip a gear unless it was already damaged. I'd say start all over with new teeth (gears). Keep the mesh pretty loose (try 2 pieces of newspaper)...and don't hit anything

Cold weather makes the teeth brittle. My LHS sells alot of them this time of year!

I may have misunderstood but if your trying to fly with any broken teeth on either gear, your just gonna break more fasterthe mesh will get out of time......Rog
