I now have both. What and where do you guys use it? And is there a preference?
(And yes, helicopter applications only apply fellas thanks lol)

I thought dry fluids was mainly meant for gears. But I see it's advertised on the literature it came with for bearings, sliders, and shafts (no real mention of gears). And the tri-flow wasn't specific at all.

Thanks.

I would use triflow on any metal to metal surfaces. Dry fluid on plastics.

I have tri-flow and used that on my sliders and bearings. Then I got dri-fluid, there's two types. There's a type for shafts and bearings, I put that on my motor bearings, main bearings, main shaft, tail shaft. And there's a type for gears that comes with a brush I put on my main gear and tail gear. I haven't really seen a difference using the gear type vs not using it but since I have it I put it on anyway. Hope this helps!

There are (2) different types of DryFluid, you have the formula for the specified areas (Heli lube).
There is another formula specifically for use on gears ;
