What is the BEST grease to use inside a metal-metal tail gear box application?
Is Castrol LM lithium grease any good (olive/buttery colour), I am looking for a grease that sticks well to metal.

Cheers.

I've found the Bosch Ft1v27 grease works well. Use it for stuff like pinion and bearing, thrust bearings etc. It's thick and sticky

Servos is a different kettle of fish - he wasn't talking about servos. but anyway, the electrical white grease or ball diff grease works well, but I wouldn't use graphite powder as it could stray to undesirable places.

No offense taken YUG, don't u love the way that SMS and email doesn't show tone

What i meant was "Y not use the white servo grease in your tail case?" as opposed to a servo question. Good point on the graphite grease.

Vario Titanium Grease

I just took my tail gearbox apart for a regreasing but it didn't need it. I really like the Vario Titanium Grease. I am using on all my heli's now.

DJDAZ - ahhh, see what you mean. Dunno much about the properties of white servo grease although I think it's designed to work with plastics/metal rather than just metal.
