In through the glow plug hole (tilt the model exhaust up and store with the piston at TDC).

Pull the backplate and apply directly to the rear bearing.

IF ITS A YS YOU CAN SQUIRT IT IN THROUGH THE PRESSURE FITTING IN THE BACKPLATE THEN TURN IT SO THE ENGINE HEAD IS FACING DOWN AND TURN THE MOTOR SO IT CAN DRAIN THROUGH THE INTAKE PORTS TO THE CYLINDER.

why do you store at TDC this would put stress on the piston, arm and sleeve when the engine cools it should be at the bottom of the swing. this would also help extend the life of the ring.

There is no stress the engine is not running, won't prolong the ring either the oil gets blown out almost instantly.

storing at TDC blocks the exhaust ports so the engine won't breath - prevents moist air from getting in and rusting things out. I also will stuff something into the tail pipe to help prevent the engine from getting moisture in there and bonus less oil dripping on the carpet as I carry them in the house. not that I always remember to put the engines at TDC but that's the idea behind it AFAIK

I spray mine down the Carb As you did,which is silicone spray safe on Rubber etc,Cant see the Point of Spraying in the Plug hole its never going to get to the Rear Bearing,UNLESS you turn the heli upsidedown for a Good minutes and wait.

Mykey heli,
Go to Meijers in the pet section and buy a syringe.Take a small drill bit and put a hole right where the carb is in front of the fan shroud,this will not effect cooling.Use the syringe to put the after run oil in the carb through the hole in the fan shroud.You can also take the exaust off and put a few drops through the exause port.

Datidun,

When I've put oil in through the plug hole, I've tilted the model in such a way that the oil drains down the bypass and boost ports to reach the lower bearing. I always rotated the engine through about a dozen revolutions to distribute the oil. Early on in the game, I pulled the backplate to confirm distribution to the lower bearing; there was plenty there.

Bladestrikes,

If the piston is at BDC, how are you blocking air from going down the intake and bypass ports into the crankcase? I'm pretty sure those ports are fully exposed when the exhaust port is open since by definition, a 2 cycle engine refreshes the fuel charge on the same cycle that exhaust occurs. You are correct about the front intake being open. That's why you store the engine with the carb's barrel fully closed.
