Century is now offering the double bearing blocks with thrust bearings. You can now have your main shaft supported my three bearings

Is this just for the Predator or can it be used on a Raven too?

its pred only... that bearing block looks like it would fit the lower block and replace the current single one. the raven has blocks fitted into the plastic frame.

Washer

Excuse my ignorance, but where does the thin metal washer with the raised lip go?

Mark,

Does this block go at the top or bottom of the mainshaft on the Predator? What is the price? Is it available for shipment now?

Thanks,

Guys,
This is an UPPER triple bearing block that is being offered as an upgrade. The cool thing about this block is that now you have a thrust bearing on the lower block(for upright loads) and a triple bearing block on the top(for inverted loads).

For example when doing a tick-toc the side loads on the radial bearings are now removed and placed onto a thrust bearing. This makes for a smoother response of the model's body to the rapid direction changes. Also, when doing an inverted auto you now have a thrust bearing to absorb those loads.

It's a nice offering for sure. But, what I like is the double radial bearings! That will make for an ultra stiff grip of the model to the disk.

Pedro,
Sorry, I forgot to respond to you question....

The washer goes on the thrust bearing to so that when it's placed against the radial bearing the load rides on the OUTER race. If a thrust bearing does not ride on the outer race of the radial bearing it's supposed to alleviate then it's not doing it's job.

So, Century came up with this little washer to make it ride on the outer race of the radial bearings it touches.

Make sense?

ok got a question... currently with that upper bearing block and the little main shaft mast stopper, i can just barely pull +10 -10 without it hitting the stopper. how will this affect it? it looks like it builds the shaft up quite a bit... any photos of it in use?

Indrid,
If you can only get +/-10 degrees then your setup is not right. That probably means your elevator bell crank is not straight up and down when you are at center stick(zero degrees).

As for the bearing block the long shouldered part faces down. Then the thrust bearing sits on top of the bearing block with the collar on top of that. The thrust bearing sits down inside the bearing block so in effect there is no impact on the pitch travel range.

Indrid,
Man I'm jealous! I would love to pull that 401 of my SE and put a 601 on. I have the 601 on the Max and it has spoiled me...

The 105mm blades really lock the SE down.
