I tried to get everything I need to build my new Eolo Spirit, but I'm finding out that I need certain kinds of oil and grease. I would have ordered them with my kit, but was told that I didn't need anything else... "just build it and fly it" was told by Robbeusa... (I did try to press the 'what do I need issue')
I have white lithium grease and lots of different kinds of oils...
Let me know so I can get what I need.
THanks!

use the lithium gease in the tail gear box, on the tail drive shaft and on any thrust bearings and oil the rest with gun oil preferably but it does not matter alot.

As Lee said, the lithium grease is ideal for the thrust races. That was what I was suggesting for the races in the head.
as the oil would disipate.
How is the build going....when do you expect to test fly?

He who dies with the most toys is the winner!

Thanks for the interest darrens! I'm building slowly as I'm doing it after work, after the kids get to bed (5 kids), etc... Thank God my wife helps with everything; I'd NEVER get another piece together! I hope to finish it by Christmas vacation (I'm a teacher in Californa) and fly it during the break.
Thanks so very much for checking back; if you hadn't I'd be lost.
