Default Plastic gear 9g servo's

I'm still learning to fly, but they day is not over until i crash! LOL! Ive lost 2 plastic servo's due to crash. If i get metal gear servo's will this stop this when i crash? or at least take some more abuse? When i say crash i don't mean destroyed, just a good hit nose first (scratch built wing)

They are much more durable. But not crash proof.

You do have to watch. Some of the metal gears still have one nylon (plastic) gear too.

Plastic geared servos usually strip teeth on one of the gears - the weakest of course ... and the replacement gear sets supply all gears - so most is wasted.
I prefer plastic gear servos for most use as then I know I will usually strip a gear before doing more damage.

The plastic gear in a metal gear train - is as I'm told for 2 reasons ... a) to provide discontinuity of electrical and gear noise and b) to have a weak gear to save servo from internal damage.

There are metal gear servos of course that have complete metal trains ...

Areas where I prefer a metal gear servo :

Combined Rudder + Nose wheel steering use.

Helicopter tail rotor servo.

All other servos - I can use plastic by careful choice of which ones ...

Plumber ... the servos you have now - check to see if you can get gear sets for them ... and replace stripped gear - put aside for use ..
