Also you will see that its the inner race which only fails on these bearings unbranded bearings.

OS is a little company compared to the top bearing makers , I dought your claim to be true.

Lets see your facts like you say ??

How many OS Engines have you rebuilt over the last few years ????

If you have rebuilt afew then you will have noticed that Hypers are now fitted with unbranded bearings , all other OS engines are not !
Have you bought OS bearings for ALL other OS engines? I thought not so quit talking from where the sun don't shine. It's those kinds of blanket statements that call credibility into question.

Using the parts listings from Tower Hobbies, The Hyper, 46FX-H, and the 55AX use the same rear bearing part number. The .46FXI uses the same size but a different part number (steel retainer vs polyamide). What IS amazing is the prices for these bearings. The bearing for the .46FXI is $39 (one third the total cost of the engine)!!! Bearings for the Hyper, 46FX-H, and 55AX are $21.49.

Well, since I used to run a rebuilding service along with bearing sales, I can say that I have rebuilt a LOT of engines in the last few years. The fact is, the Hyper has been a problem since the day they were introduced. Even back when they were supplied with NTN branded bearings. They also started out with steel ribbon retainers and had a lot of failures with those. My number one selling bearing set is for the Hyper. It outsells all other engines combined so I guess I should be thanking OS for this "problem".

I also have several dozen failed rear bearings from Hypers where the outer race was far worse shape than the inner race.

What are you talking about , WE ARE talking about the Hyper 50 motor , stop waffling no good ****.

Also the reason some engines have the outer race worse is because they have kept using them long after they should have been changed.

Also please dont insult me
