I noticed on my trex 450S CF the stock bearings wear out pretty fast. anyone have any experience replacing the stocks with the upgraded bearings; which would be the way to go; ABEC-5 by MH or Ceramics.

thanks,

Jeff

I am still on the original bearings of my CDE kit....about 150-160 flights. The SE I have it a rebuilt 450X....its on 2nd set of bearings, not because they wore out, but while I had it apart I just replaced.

The way to go is ceramic hybrids. But it's a waste of money if you crash too often because ceramic or not, the main shaft bearings will get ruined if you have a crash that bents the main shaft....
