Does the new DFC model still have the one way bearing slipping problem or did Align fix that issue? I had a V2 that this happened to and replaced it with the KDE one. I now have the DFC Pro and was just wondering if I need to get the upgrade to prevent this from happening again...

Blew the one out on my HWC 700 Gasser conversion. Replaced it with the KDE version and it's been fine. I have been flying my 700DFC fairly gently on the Align version with no problems so far. The one in my gasser showed no evidence of any kind of bearing retaining compound on the sleeve what so ever.

I will in the near future switch the E over to the KDE version as insurance.

Sorry Dino, but that's a lame response. The failures have been due to the steel liner slipping in the aluminum housing, not lack of maint. What QC steps have been implemented to address this problem?
