Just want to know if anybody as had this happen, check pic and that bearing fell out on me during flight, nothing happened thank god and I flew it a few times before I notice what I taught I saw was actualy a bearing falling in the sky.

Anyway my questions is can I use red loctite to lock this in place on the outer race. I think JB weld might be a little insane to pull apart...

Keep your eyes in the sky I might be Flying Yeeeeeh!!!!

Green loctite is what you want. The red is not designed for this type
of application.

Yes, I had this happen to me while flying my Raptor 50. It was a new Raptor hub and it was not cheap either. Had a slight vibe and inspected my heli. I was like WTF! I replaced the bearing and used red loctite. Its still flying.
