Is it obvious that this is a different bearing from appearance, or if it were mixed in with 50 other bearings on a table would it just blend in unless you knew what you were looking for? Does the bearing look essentially like any other bearing, but the advantages come out in the metallurgy, the fit, and the finish -- stuff not typically visible to the casual observer
I'm willing to bet it is a sleeve bearing of a Copolymer material. So I doubt you will have any problem finding it in a stack of bearings.

On this website there is a picture but it looks like a normal radial bearing to me.

Time for a reality check:
Must be used with Magnum Fuel....
Well, I guess no Magnum Fuel, no Warranty would be in order...
*Unconditional Limited Warranty*

When used with Magnum Model Fuels your engine bearings are guaranteed to be free of defects and perform like new for 1 year from date of purchase. To apply warranty return with original package for a single one time replacement.
Wouldn't requiring the use of Magnum Fuels represent a condition to an unconditional limited warranty? I need to hang onto the original package for at least a year, and probably the receipt, as well.
** LIFETIME WARRANTY **
Lifetime seems to defined as one year from the date of purchase, for a one-time replacement.
First kit $50.00 any kit there after is $35.00
Seems I get about a year's worth of flying on a $5 bearing from Paul at RC Bearings. AT $50 a pop for the magic bearing that requires me to use only Magnum fuel, I can apparently fly my OS 50 for ten years, installing one $5 bearing per season and I can use fuel that I can buy locally without much trouble. Wonder if I'd still be flying that same 50 ten years from now? Even at $35, that's seven years of flying the same motor.

Kind of finding it hard to do come up with a cost/benefit ratio that makes me want to buy the darn thing.

Funny how it all sounds so wonderful on paper (or electrons).

Y'all are looking at the old adverts. The current design will let you run any fuel, doesn't matter what the brand is. The old Centerglide bearings had a special coating on them which at the time was a good idea but this isn't that product.

I'm still not clear, is this a rolling type bearing or a bushing?
