A lot of that depends on the design of the torque tube systems. Not all torque tube designs are as damage prone in a boom strike. Some are actually quite a good resistance to such damage.

If it is a design with a dogbone type of universal joint on one end (or better yet, one on both ends) then it will take a major tail boom bend to damage it. Such a bend would have probably also damaged the belt in a belt drive.

Also, not all t/t drives are as noisy as othere. Some are even as quiet as some belt drives. Again, it all depends on the design and gears used.

Re: Holy smokes is it noisy!!

I have seen a few boom strikes on Trex 600's and 700's and once it has been dinged especially if its near the inner support, the inside shaft will not run true and it adds a lot of vibration.
There are quiet TT especially the new Raptor G4 or E720, nice machine and very quiet.
