I've been running a G-1000DXA For 8 months now.It turns a Force 12 C3S
with ease.The antenna is on a 10' mast 5' above the top of one of 2 TB-3 thrust
bearings.The rotor sets on another shelf 5' down.Tower is Rohn 45G.I really
like the 2 thrust bearing set up.More expense but worth it.I have had no
problems with this rotor yet.You need a steady hand to solder the connectors
on,but a panavise and magifier helped this shaky OM.Pic on QRZ.Hope this helps.
