What is umbrella gear?

Align calls them tail drive gears, but they somehow started being referred to as umbrella gears.

I will look in my parts bin for the shims. I only have plastic tail blades. I have a set of KBDB's in neon yellow. No carbon fiber.

OK. If it was green/black I would be all over it. Maybe I will check it out anyway later in the week.

I'm getting ready for tomorrow's flight session. I am almost finished with the repairs to the Mini Pulse.

info from the wise, if any is interested in purchasing a DX9 or more advanced radio, maybe Newjak has better luck BUT....

the supplied SD card is RUBBISH! even horizon/spektrum is aware! and continue to sell these decent radio with a junky card installed, and mine came with version 1.01A.

short story I was updated it and shows signs of WTF and hangs on the main screen ... I used a card from my old cellphone and success without bricking it , now the splash screen turns off and beeps correctly, HAPPY! and leaving the fuk thing alone

I didn't use the supplied SD card. I used my old one from the DX8. I thought I could import my model info but it isn't compatible. What version did you upgrade to? The latest version is 1.06

Spektrum™ DX9 AirWare™ Change Log
2014-May-21
Version 1.06
Changes since 2014-April-18
New Features & Improvements
• Added AS3X Gain monitor functions for use with AR636, AR6335, and similar
AS3X receivers. When you enable telemetry option AS3X, you are able to see
gain status in real time, and adjust it with a trimmer. Note that this function
performs the following re-configurations in your radio:
o The F-Mode switch has its outputs set to the proper values for AS3X
operation. If you are using it for other purposes, you will need to
reconfigure those features to allow AS3X to use them.
o Mix 16 (DX10t and higher) is used to control AS3X gain.
o The selected channel is reconfigured for proper control. If you change the
channel, you will need to manually re-assign the old channel to its desired
purpose.
o Enables a screen “AS3X Gains” on the Function List to configure
parameters.
o Enables the AS3X telemetry gain monitor on the telemetry screens.
o If you are using a DX6, you can tweak the gains using the roller while on
the AS3X Gains configuration screen. If you are using a higher radio, you
can adjust at any time using the desired trimmer.
Corrections
• In Heli mode, Governor Trim function now works properly.
• Fixed Servo Travel problem for second Elevator in a 4-Servo swash heli.
• Improved translations in multiple languages
• When using a trimmer in 2- or 3-position mode, trimmers were acting as Flight
Mode trims. They are now operating in Common Mode
• Trim decrement tone was being controlled by the Switch Sounds setting
• Governor Trim on Heli Trim Setup screen is now properly adjustable
• If a radio is configured as a Wireless Trainer Master, if it were used as a wired
slave it would not function. This has been corrected.
Audio System Changes
• No change
