Engine Protection for storage
Guys,

I have seen some of the threads about "After Flight" lubrication.

I am worried that I have not been aware of this requirement, and may pay for it!!

Situation is, I cant use my helicopter for about 7 weeks as I am overseas.
I made no special arrangements before leaving, except that I emptied fuel tank, and put a peg on the muffler tube.
Glow plug still in, and both radio and reviever batteries were still very charged.

Any advice on what I should have done, and I will get one of my sons to do it for me.

Many thanks

Start it once a week if you can have them do that, and run the engine a few minutes,(outside). When running time is up, clamp fuel line and let run until it stops, then put glow heater on and turn over, it will usually run a few more seconds, do this just until it no longer fires. Charge the batteries every couple of weeks. ChrisChris

Disconnect the batteries to prevent black wire ( corrosion). An put some after run oil in the engine. In the carb and turn it over with the starter( make sure its not hydrolocked).

Flip your heli over, take the backplate off and put some after run oil directly on the rear bearing and spin it so some drips down onto the front bearing. This is the only way to ensure that your bearings are protected from rust and it really only takes a couple minutes.
