BobOD, you bring up a good point. I just added 242 to my feathering shaft. Will this suffice, or do I need 243?

I haven't tried 243 yet...plan to next order. Sounds like a good concept....cleaning screws can be a pain when you have a lot of them to do.
I use 242 on feathering shafts with good results.

I use 243 almost everywhere.

I use X-Cell brand green threadlocker on the boom support bolts, the set screw that holds the tail rotor hub on, and some head parts.

I use the align green bearing retainer in the clutch stack bearings, I find my bearings last much longer here using this stuff.

Red I rarely use. Occasionally, I find 290 handy for certain screws as well.

Did you see the size of the one bottle... That thing was ginormous!

100 years of heli building, and you couldn't use half...

That brings me to a topic I think this thread can cover...

shelf life of an open bottle of thread lock... I had some go bad, it turned kind of paste like, I didn't know it was bad, I kept using it, I had some bolts back out, spindle bolts on my 450... that bad thread lock turned out to be the culprit... Thoughts...

Some of the thin threadlocks have the actual locking component in suspension. Before use the bottle needs a good old shake to mix it up.

I have only found one instruction manual that actually recommended red loctite and gave a torque figure for the feathering spindle bolts and that was the Hirobo SDX.

Dr.Ben whose hex drivers do you use please?

I am installing a KDE motor mount and KDE bearing block on one of my helis. It is an adjustable bracket. Once I have in desired location suitable for pinion, do I use red or blue or holding these blocks?

Add the Aurora to the list! The whole head is built with red loctite...per the instructions! And...some other areas.

I used red loctite on the grip arms on my Compass 3D+ & 6HV.

My last build - a Trex-500. I used red on all the ball links going into the swash, Bolts for the DFC head and the tail slider sleeve threads. There were a few other spots too. Found I was using red in more places than I thought. Pretty much anywhere that I know even after a crash I''m not likely to take it apart or if I want to make SURE it'll not come apart (blade grips).

Simple...Blue!

"Maybe" red for mounting the motor to the motor mount.

I dont think JB Weld would have helped the heli in the vid on the first page.If you look when he spools the heli up the smoke gets pulled up into the blades,obviously he had his pitch reversed
