Do you use any kind of oil/grease on the moving parts of your heli?
Do you grease/oil the thrustbearing in the rotorhead?
What do you use, and where?
I would like to get some general tips on this matter..

Cheers

Anders I grease all thrust bearings with Tri-Flow synthetic grease. Install the bearing races (rotorhead) so that the open side points in, keeps the grease from being forced outward. Use the same grease lightly for installing the dampeners as well. I also put some of the grease on the radius block pins, and the tail blade rotor shaft. All other bearings and swash get a drop of Tri-Flow synthetic oil.

You're there and we're over here, so some guidelines:

Find the stickiest grease you can to grease the thrust races. Even when oriented inward, it still tends to sling out over time. T/R thrust races will get darn near empty in comparatively little time. I use a product called "Red and Tacky". It is and is .

Teflon based products are fine for shafts, but I'm REALLY careful using it with bearings. Relative to the internal tolerances of miniature bearings, some teflon particles are pretty big. Thus for these precision miniature bearings, I use a high grade instrument oil with no enhancers.

Within reason, it's far more important to use SOMETHING routinely than to get so wrapped up in exact product/brand choices.
