as i am taking this apart, i have access to area's that have never seen the light of day for quite some time. i have heard of people using 409 and other degreasers. is that the norm, or is there something else you use to clean it after you ran the heli and or take it apart?

Denatured alcohol works great. Just put some in a spray bottle, and spray away.

I use denatured alcohol, because isopropyl alcohol has water in it, and that's bad news for bearings.

Clean heli

Clean your heli? Why would you do that? I usually fly mine relentlessly, then walk out to the landing zone to pick up all the dirty (and broken) pieces. I promplty call Ron Lund and install all nice new and CLEAN parts where all the dirty (and broken) parts use to be.

Hee, he.

I got this from my "old school" heli mentor when I asked the exact same question many years ago.

Really, I do use some baby wipes, isopropyl alcohol, and an air compressor. Sometimes an orange flavored window/surface cleaner for some parts. Dawn dish soap for sink washable items: canopy.

Isopropal

Alcohol should be okay if you get the good stuff . . . the 93%. I've seen it at Wal-Mart and Sams. It has a blue label.

The 70% does have more water but I still watch it evaporate quickly. Alcohol combines with water so if the alcohol evaporates quickly, so does the water.
