blade grips bearing installation
When installing bearings in the blade grips am I supposed to use the green loctite for fit or the red for security?

I just see a little bottle icon on my downloaded manual.

thanks,
Cool

I thought you would use the green to secure the bearings in the housings and the blue to use as thread locker......

Canoman is correct- The green is retaining compound, blue is threadlock.Rob

Would someone please explain to me why one would use locktite on bearings in a grip? I just need to know as I don't believe in locking a bearing race in there when they're held in with the tention of the spindel nut/screw. It'd be a problem to dissasemble for a cleaning after a dirt nap? If the bearings are sloppy in the grip why not just change the grip?Ignorance is the absence of facts.Stupid is lacking the intellectual capacity to comprehend the fact

I have never used any kind of adhesive or loctite on my bearings and have had no problems. I have to agree with tomrex.10-8

If you use green Loctite on those bearing you will never get them out again just like TomRex said. As I recall the shear strength of green is something like 1700 lbs. Considering the design of the 450 head, the bearing are held in position anyway.

i am going to have to go out on my own on this one.. i totally believe it does require to be held in their some how.. what happens is if you don't lock the bearing in their, their is a tiny bit of movement and over time the blade grips can wear, not only thing their is a risk of generating radio trouble(metal touching metal, 6000 times a minute)! i use red locktite on mine and i simply heat the grip up and the bearing comes out pretty easy.. locktite always releases underheat! blue probably would work, but red is abit stronger, green is superstrong, i guess it's personal preferance but i would recommend using something!!Feed it some nitro!, try not to get bitten..

I think I'll use elmers glue.

just kidding.

The P.O. of this heli had none of the above, but I lost 2 bearings in the glitch of all glitches.

At the moment I do not plan on using anything and I do not think red is a good option for me until my setup is perfect.

thanks for your responses
