What kind of greese are you guys using on the autorotation hub, or are you even putting greese on it as directed in the instructions?

Thanks for all your help!

Grease...
I never grease mine and they seem to work okay?

I think I just used high speed or Scorpion motor bearing oil. I would think grease would put more drag than necessary on the hub and will effect how long your blades keep spinning in an auto.

Automobile automatic transmission fluid. Not that other stuff won't work, but I swear by it.

Flood the bearing with the oil, blot the excess out, and install. Repeat every 100 flights or so. In the past 10 years since I started using it, not a single bearing has ever failed on me.
