I lost a tail rotor a few weeks ago in tall bushes and still could not recover it. After all the rain even if I can recover it by now, would all the radial and thrust bearings be shot, requiring replacement?

After 1 week of moisture/heat, I would not trust the radial bearings. If they are sealed, you won't know for sure that there isn't any moisture hiding in there that may cause trouble later. Even if you can clean, flush and dry them.

The thrust bearings are able to be examined visually, and you could put them back together and feel any notchiness in them.

Depending on your bird, it may be small insurance to buy new bearings.

That is what I am thinking too. I am going to replace all the bearings.
