Anyone know of a good source for bearings
I would like to purchase bearings for my heli, a decent quantity since i have been crashing like crazy lately. I fly a Compass 7hv and am trying to beat paying $2.50 per bearing.
thanks

Try RCbearings.com.

If you know exactly the size you can serch their website for it.

There is also Boca, but they are insanely pricey for the same class bearings.

Measure them and call a REAL bearing supplier. The R/C.com bearing people sell chinese made garbage. Especially their motor bearings.

Just checked RC bearings and they are $1 also BUT you have to purchase a minimum of 10 to get that price.

This may sound odd but Napa Auto parts has ability to get bearings. I can take a bearing and let them measure it and get them cheap. They seem to be the same quality as what comes in them. Even the front and rear bearing on a motor.There is no such thing as up, it's all out...

i've been using avid, if you crash them, they'll crap out, but that's to be expected.

Gents,

I agree that the cheaper bearings from and RCBearings are not the highest quality bearings but they ARE better than what most of the Chinese made helicopters come with. They work well enough for most applications. Boca are the same, with a higher price tag.

I am particular about main shaft bearings, so I managed to get a hold of 20 pack of NSK 10mm ID bearings (local supplier) that fit all my Hirobos, TT, and even the Diabolo.
Yes they were a few bucks more per bearing but they been as good as T-Bone.

Our bearings are made to all industry standards and MANY people on this and other forums report that they perform at least as good as the "brand name" bearings that come stock. In many cases, they cure problems created by inferior bearings. We are supplying bearings to several commercial customers including printer manufacturers, manufacturers of police surveillance quads, Begali keys, and the Wright Patterson AFB wind tunnel. If anyone has a problem with our bearings, please let us know rather than making baseless flames on here.Paul Mcintosh
