Hi Fellows:
Maybe someone will no why I need to keep the spindle shaft and the dampers well greased to keep my blades in track. The instructions say nothing about greasing these items. I no they do on the 60 Cal. What would be a good grease to use for long use? I'm using glass blades from Mavrikk. The bearings in the blade holders r new and the linkage is good. Thanks.

Keep them blades turning!

jag01,

GM makes a silicone grease that I use on the rubber door seals on my XJR and Corvette. It also works well on the rubber teeter rubbers.

Mid America Motorworks has it, 3 tubes for $9.99. The local GM dealer probably has it too. If you can't find it you can use Bosch grease, lithium grease, KY, Vaseline and almost anything else that is slippery.

Not had that kind of trouble with either of my Cal 30's.

Could be a bad bearing in the grip (6x13x5 mm, PN 96888), or possibly something wrong with your thrust bearings or their installation -- are they assembled wrong?

The thrust bearing races have different sized inner holes. The one with the larger diameter goes on the inside (closest to the main rotor shaft), the one with the smaller diameter hole goes on the outside -- closest to the rotor blades.

Thrust bearings might need a shot of lube, too.

I had a Nexus that drove me nuts trying to get it to track -- turned out to be one of the four bearings in the grips bound up under load, otherwise you couldn't tell anything was wrong with it. Replaced the four bearings, the tracking troubles went away.

I want to thank everyone for there replies. I put all new bearings plus the thrust bearings also and made sure they were in the correct direction. Now if there is a bad new bearing thats not good under load hard to tell. Will keep working on it. Blades track really good when I regrease the spendle shaft and dampers. Get about 10 flight or so then need to regrease again.

Keep them blades turning !

a lot of raptor 30 v1 get cured from woof and poof by only greasing dampener....key is that the spindle shaft move freely and rotate inside damper without a lot of resistance.
