I guess I expected this but was hoping for more...

It is dissapointing but I'm going to see if I can find a 225 plastic locally and swap over the metal gears... At least I wouldn't be down for a couple of weeks.

Is this ok to still send in the servo with the plastic gears?

Not sure, call the service dept to verify.
They can also give you turn around times for repair.

If you purchased the servo at your LHS, they may be able to help as well.
