Does anyone know the size of the bearing for the bearing in the tail bearing block? Mines are starting to get notchy and I want to replace them. The aurora ones are $6.50 a bearing but I need 3 and that a lot for me to spend on just 3 bearings. I can get some for cheaper at the bearing store but I don't know the size. Are the FX bearings the same as the Aurora tail bearing block?

Lol I don't drink coffee nor smoke. I'm just a college student on a budget

I'm too lazy and never took the bearings out yet to measure them. Oh well. I figured someone will already know the size but I guess no one does. Time for me to pull out the bearing and measure them

Lol I been too busy catching up with the reading that I don't have time to fix my heli. Well I went ahead and ordered some 6x13x5 bearings for the tail bearing block so hopefully they will fit.
