And how do you know how many times you've crashed on the sim?

That has been my plan so far (subject to change), cause I'm still pretty new and wreck more bearings than I wear out.
I have never considered upgrading any bearing before. I would just be happy if it was in stock and the correct size! So I thought I would try the ceramic hybrid Boca Bearings drive train bearing upgrade kit. I am looking forward to it.

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

Yes, you have a specific plan, turbo, and I would pursue it as well...I'm just talking about my everyday beaters.

I've done that.

Freezing them before installation helps during install.

My beer fridge comes in handy for other things as well.

No, but the freezer if just there for free...might as well take advantage!

You never had a beer-sickle...goes great with popcorn.

These bearings are going on my low head speed 700E. Thats why I told them to remove the grease. Want to see how free I can get the drive train.

I don't think the grease will matter, compared to other issues.

Drive train drag....any "grease drag" pales in comparison.

Well here is what I am speaking of. This is Raja with his Whiplash gasser. He autos it down on a picnic table after a few trys and lets it spool down after slowing the head in a flare to land. The spool down starts at 5:04 ,,,,, My Spectra Gasser and my 1005 do this too. My Align 700E does not ,,,yet,,,

Watch at YouTube

Doesn't a "gasser" have a clutch and an OWB?

versus just a OWB in an electric.

Yes of course but the clutch is out of the equation when the engine is off yes? Or am I missing something?
