Hi all. Looking for a little more advice here. After crashing my rap 30 v.1 the other day I've decided this is a good time to upgrade it to a v.2. Doing this will replace some of the bearings, but since this heli has about 160 flights on it, I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to replace whatever bearings (or some of them) that aren't replaced by the upgrade? Just trying to get my ducks in a row so I can order what I need all at once.

Tnx, Jim

the V2 upgrade comes with all new bearings for the head, main shaft, and tail if I am not mistakin. Unless you find something else not right I would not spend the extra money, just check them all over real good is what I would do.

By a tool known as "The Greaser". Best $40 you can spend!

Tnx for the replies. Al, I've heard of the greaser. Would you mind elaborating a little on it's usage or direct me to some more info? I'll even do a search and see what I can find. Would it be appropriate to use it on the old bearings that won't be replaced? I'm thinking this will be a good time (winter coming and all) to go completely thru this heli. Especially since I've got the bug to build up a 2nd heli (but that's a whole nother subject worthy of a thread of it's own ).

Tnx, Jim

Jim, The Greaser is the way to go for sure. grease all the bearings when you do the teardown. Sure it's ok to grease the old/good bearings. I usually re-do any bearing when I have a sub-assembly apart.

Tnx for the info, Al. I ordered me a greaser and grease today. Oh, and as long as I had them on the phone I ordered a Raptor 50 kit and OS50 Hyper.
