Bearings replacement info needed.
About to replace bearing on 700E heli.

1. Any suggestion where to replace with ceramic bearings or SS.

2. What should I look for that I can tell it is a good bearing(specifications).

Thank you,
Maxx

IMHO, ceramic bearings for a heli is a waste of money but hey, it's not my money so you can do whatever you want. I would just use ABEC-1 52100 ball bearing steel spec bearings.

Agree steel bearings fit heli applications better.

Avid RC has the best prices and they hold up as well or better than bearings costing much more.

During manufacturing, the proper cleaning, lube type and quantity is very critical too.

Chrome steel is harder than SS. If corrosion is not an issue, SS will not wear as well.
