I found today my One-Way is locking up in the other direction when I goto start the Heli. I pulled the motor out and cleaned the Starter shaft and One-Way bearing but I can still feel with my hand turning the opposite direction, it wants to catch. How can I tell if it is the One_way Bearing in the clutch or the Starter Shaft without having another shaft also has this been an issue with anybody else. The Heli only has 2-1/2 gallons on it.

I was thinking of applying some automotive moly grease for the One-Way bearing.

From what Ive been told grease is a no-no in one way bearings.

I would thoroughly clean the bearing and lubricate
"sparingly" with some light oil like Tri-flo.

If it still grabs then replace it.

Did you pull all the washers off your engine before you mounted your fan?

Auto transmission fluid (ATF) works the best on the one-way bearings.

green river,

I have been looking for it also. The Autozone store is supposed to carry it but they did not have it. Most major Auto parts stores should carry it.

How often do you need to lube the oneway bearing just out of interest?
I nearly have my R50 ready to go and just wondered how long the lube lasts ?

Cheers,
Jason.

Tri-flo
Most well stocked bicycle shops should carry it. I was able to locate it at several bike shops down here where I live. It works great and doesn't require a lot to properly lube your heli. When it dries, it leaves a Teflon coating on your bearings that will last many flights. I also put a drop on my finger and apply it to the main shaft so the the swash plate can slide easier.
