Hello RR,

I just bought a heli from an RR member and one of the bearings that holds the tail rotor grips on is quite tore up? What is the best way to get these off of the TR hub. They are on there quite tight and I do not want to damage the hub or other bearings during removal..

TIA

Hit it with a heat gun and it should come right off. It might need to get pretty warm to work, but it should come off without a problem.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

What heli?? is it the 30 or 50 v.1?? If not undo the 2 bolts holding the grip to geather and losten the screw going in to the hub. Then just pull the bearing('s) off. If the screw is striped try to grab it with visegrips.

I beleive he is reffering to a bearing that has made its self at home on the hub without any bolts holding it in place. Kind of like if it were red locktited on the hub. In which case heat would be the best way I can think of to get it off.

Hot, cold. Whatever worked. I knew it would have something to do with the temp.
