One-Way Bearing Issue Count
#1

Obviously there is a one-way bearing issue. Let's get our voice heard by tracking how many of these there are.

I was working on my Trex Nitro Pro last night when I noticed the one-way was seized. Once I unseized it, there is more play, and it isn't as smooth, nor does it "catch" as precisely.

How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

Mine is locked up.

I just bought two one-way bearings to correct it. What do you think? One out of the three bearings will work???

Mine has locked up from first tank until I fixed mine this week end by using some Silicone Heat Transfer Compound part no. 49643 by Dynatex . It keeps the bearing cool and slick , my bearing was locking up on spool up , thats how annoying it was . 4 tanks later still no lock up.

I've stripped it down and I have now used Lithium grease (heat resistant)so I am going to see how long that lasts.

Mine locked after 5 flights, Revolution reported it to Robbe who have suppied a drive insert saying the old one had too much tolerance, the problem was my bearing cage was distorted causing a roller to fall out.

Locked up after a few flights. Recently put in a replacement and seems to be working.

Oh by the way when you press in your new one way make sure to use some locktite. As mine spun in the hub after a few flights.

3 gallons then locked. We'll see how the home remedies work. Always been a fan of ATF, gonna try the red lube or lithium.
