I got a good reminder why I don't waste my time or money on the local hobby shops in this town. I got home yesterday and called Riders to see if they have any 9x5x3 bearings. To my surprise the guy on the phone says, "yes we have those" so I drive all the way up there to get them. The guys starts looking around "no we don't carry that size". You told me on the phone a half hour ago you did. I get a blank stare. Not even a "sorry about that". So I called Hobby World and whom ever it was I talked to there sounded like he had never even heard of a bearing or what they are used for.

Long story short (too late) I'm going to placing a bearing order from either Boca or VXB if anyone needs any bearings let me know what you need and I will add them to the order.

Maybe we can get Steve McFall to open one in GR! Fat chance but one can dream!
Jay another place to look at is RCBearings.

Thanks for tip Sonny. RCBearings prices are about half of Boca Bearings prices. RCBearings claims all the bearings I bought are ABEC 3 or better. I find that a little hard to believe but they should be decent none the less.

No problem Jay, I think Steve turned me on to them a long time ago! Well , 5 years ago! That's a long time I guess! I have not had any problems with his bearings to date!

That's good to hear, because of course I went overboard and bought a crap load of bearings. Basically two full sets for the E5 and most of the bearings for the Protos as well.

Did they list them out for your machine or did you have to order by size

I went through the manuals and documented all the sizes. I stocked up the bearings that get take the most abuse, main shaft, tail shaft and torque tube. I know on the protos that after bending three main shafts from various crashes one of the bearings is slightly notchy. The tail shaft bearing after two crashes is totally shot.

Did you grease your bearings with the greaser ? I have been running mine for 4 years without a failure.

I did not grease my electrics though and I do go thru bearings on them, so I guess thats a choice , I never greased electric due to the drag from the grease.

No I haven't done any greasing other than thrust bearings. I would think the bearings should last a long time if you are not bending shafts and then forcing the bearing off the bent shaft. I know the one that failed on my tail shaft has been through three bent shafts.

Just enough grease so that they dont rust , once you spray them out with alcohol once thats all gone, I am gonna regrease everything this winter and replace whats bad, that should keep me busy for most of the winter.
