On your helis man ... get your mind out of the gutter

I have heard some people say they use silicone lube. What kind? Anyone else use something different?

I thought KY Jelly just meant that it was jelly made in Kentucky. Once I learned what it really was it then made sense why it tasted so bad on toast.

Slider, "Yr Just-2-Cool".....I use tri-flo its a great lube, I cant get it in the Branson Aera. I've used it for 30 years, and have to have band members, and friends get it at Fleet Farm Wis, for me when they come down to the Ozarks. Last time, payed same price for the tiny can, that I did years ago for the BIG Can,when I was based out of thAre. It's good stuff for sure. OK, Tri-Flo, or Pure Silicone? Both are Best !
