What's the difference b/w the T22(red) and R48(green) bottles ?Which bottle for what screws?
I normally use the Loctite 242 (blue) for my nitro helis...is it too much for a micro or is it also suitable.
Should i loc-tite all over (have an SE kit) ?

I use Loctite 243 on mine, so 242 will be the same. Don't use the stuff in the bottles that come with the kit.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

I too don't trust the included bottles... I would say a neccesity is to get some quality loctite.... The T22 is new... it didn't come with the 450XL/450X versions... just the R48... the R48 is crap.... I assume the T22 is probably the same way.... BTW, Red is usually for permanent bonds, where green is for non permanent used for smooth parts like bearings to metal.... Red I would guess is better for threads.... I personally still use green for my threaded parts.

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

Thanks for advice ,'cos the manual is still wishy -woshy about green and red differences or it's maybe my understanding.

BTW anyone just using blue loctite for the tiny screws?

R48 is crap...That's funny. I used it when assy'd my EVO50 and never had any problems with it. Granted if to much is used in an area like feathering shaft bearing lock screws and need to dis-assy the blade grips...Your Screwed.

Welcome my son, Welcome to the machine
