So long story short...Crashed my raptor in a lake...Not salt water..not fresh water...but brackish. I have been soaking any bearings that where having problems rolling in 3-in-1 oul...they all appear to have loosened up and are rolling fine...should they be ok to use??

Im thinking if they were hard to turn then they probably rusted. I would replace them and be done with it.

You crashed your heli in a lake and you worry about your bearings
what about the electronics
sorry to hear about your crash.

I think the electronics are going to make it, I sprayed them down with wd40 which does a great job of preventing corrion which usually ends up being the killer

Ditto,
Bearings would be the last of my worries.
Or did you already write off the electronics.

WD 40?
Ok that will work. But my trick after loosing a few slope planks in the ocean is do the following.
Pull the battery.
Take everything out of the craft before things dry and throw them in a bucket of fresh water.
Pull the electronics out of there housings, and let them swim in Isopropyl Alcohol. Use a air hose and dry them off.
Servos need some grease when you put things together.
my two cents.

Billm you are totally right, I know the alcholol tick and it works great, I just don't know how to get the electronics out of these darn things I tried I think they are glued or something.Fut. s3151
