I am planning to replace my bearings in my Raptor 50 and was wondering what this 29 to 49 BB mavrikk upgrade is at heliproz.
http://www.heliproz.com/prodinfo.asp?number=803145

It doesn't provide any description. Are these 20 replacement bearings for some of the Raptor stock bearings? Are they better bearings than the stock?

What bearings should I consider repalcing? I assume the main shaft, starter shaft and clutch, T/R shaft, T/R slider. Should I also replace maybe the mixer and washout arm bearings, seesaw bearings and flybar bearings? What about all of the control arm bearings (pitch, elev, aileron, T/R)? Or the grip bearings (main and T/R)?

Should they be upgraded to something better than stock? What is a good source?

These are just the bushings that are replaced by bearing .If you are going to change up your bearings go to https://securehost4.hrwebservices.n...arings/catalog/
a complete set 39.95 and they are good bearings .

that depends on whether the bearings lifetime limited by how often you crash. Most of the TT bearings are OK although I would recommend using quality sealed bearings for the main shaft, tail shaft and seesaw and flybar. The latter tend to get loose supprisingly quickly. The rest last well enough.

Thanks. My kit came with all bearings, so I wasn't sure what the 20 bearing upgrade was. I plan to get the bearing set from RC-Bearings and I also noticed this upgrade to the pinion bearing which I plan on getting as well.
