I like to use pea nut butter every 50 flights. You may need a bolt stretcher to aid in removal .
The bolt stretcher works sometimes, but i have had better luck with dehydrated water pills

Last summer I started running a .4% bacon grease mix in my fuel. Works amazingly well, side benefits are if have not had to adjust the side float transfer valve on my regulater since last summer.

Just my .02

Well that all depends on what your using to clean them with, i always use "prop wash" myself but you have to order it but it's worth it ! if you use "prop wash" you'll only have to clean them once a month because it works so good !

My IQ dropped a couple points from reading this. The muffler bearing joke was funny back in 1996.

I used "relative" bearing grease and she can now plot true north.

Just change the rotation of my main blades and can't find counter clockwise rotating muffler bearings any where. Help I just installed a counter clockwise main shaft and don't want to have to tear the heli apart to go back to clockwise.

Well if you think it's time to clean them its probably better to just change them. As stated previously, they can be hard to find in stock, but remember, you'll need a metric crescent wrench to remove them

Changing the polarity in my packs every 6months is all I have to do now.
I emptied (flushed out) the old used electrons from my ESC and motor and installed fresh electrons, along with reversing the polarity in all my packs once a month to keep the electrons as fresh as possible. I might try tweeking the Nucleus of the electron to see if it will go Quantum-sonic!

I changed my muffler bearings to the new Roller Bearings and gained 30% more power! I also mod’ed the crankcase for the experimental chrome plated dip stick...it didn't do as well as the ad's was bragging about. It's possible the new roller bearing stole the "thunder" (increase of power) from the chrome plated dip stick!

If you didn't use sythetic that is where your power loss is coming from.

I cut my muffler open and it must be the new bearingless type. No bearings..

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

That's a good idea. I also plan on getting the new mini single windshield wiper for my heli canopy. Then I can fly in the rain and it'll wipe the water away and keep it visible.
