Every time I have an unplanned maintainence opportunity or err bout with terra firma. If I go over 75 flts before that happens and remember to re grease them , they are usually in need. May I add don't forget the tail as well.

I find that after about 150 flights they wear a fair amount so I just replace em.

The grease I pack tends to stay there until I replace them. Triflow PTFE grease, amazing stuff.
