People who have used training gear: 56%
People who still use training gear: 27%

These are the three biggest problems with the Hornet. Based upon user feedback (the "comments" field) replacing the main shaft with a more rigid (metal) shaft is the most common request by far.

About half of the people will experience Tail Shaft Input gear stripping. Motor output gear and then main gear are not far behind.

It appears here that breakage of the Motor Output gear and Main Gear was more common among those who boiled. I would probably conclude that these people boiled after the stripping, as a result of it.
