Bearings
Looking at some Boca Bearings for my G30. Kinda confused on which to get from Boca. They have some for 2.75 each or some for $7.95 each. Are the more expensive ones really worth the added cost? I need some 10x19x5 & 8x16x5.

well you can think about this in many different ways, mainly you first have to ask yourself how much you crash, if you push yourself and you feel you will crash in the next month or 2 then buy cheap

half & half,,
or,, just buy the more expensive Bearings for the Main Shaft and Tail Drive Input and Output Shafts,,

I don't think you will feel much of a differences in the Levers (like the B-Cranks, Washout Arms, Mixers, Seesaws) with the more expensive Bearings

I find BOCA confusing and overpriced. Their cheap bearings are not any better than say Helidirect, Align or RC-Bearings, but they are more expensive. So at what point are you paying significantly more and actually getting a better bearing?

I use the three listed above for general purpose and I like Miniature Aircraft for the more critical main shaft, clutch and tail bearings.

Then when I do email BOCA for technical assistance for a project I was working on, they never replied back. So more expensive and no customer service. What a deal!

Even our LHS was using them but found better sources.
