From RC screws regarding bearing kit for thundertiger E550:

Hi, thank you for contacting us! The manufacturer does not specify how many of each are included, only that the kit includes standard bearings, flanged bearings & 3-piece thrust bearings (if needed for vehicle), as needed for this vehicle.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Regards,
Jo

The bearing kit is $67.50, too pricy for trial and error to see what is included. Also, I'm on a bit of a budget

if it doesn't fit, make it fit.

Do you really need to use that thunder tiger flybarless head? I got an N5 synergy flybarless head. If you want to go back to flybar head, I got one that will work on the E550/E620.

Hi Juan, I just heard from Dr Ben who had 2 bearings he could part with and I had 2 left in my stash so with his I will be able to rebuild the head in time for flying season. I still will continue to look for more because this in my "go to" heli and I'm sure I'll need more in the future. Thanks for checking your stash.

called Radwell, cost is $26.80 plus shipping per bearing. Since the E550 flybarless head uses four of these, I'm looking at $105 plus shipping. A bit too pricey for me.

Hello
I looked into this a while ago as being a possibly show stopper on my x50

I’ve still got two sets of of bearings, but when I run out will:
Use the thinner 7x13x4
Bearings (which are a really common and cheap size) and then make up some good quality spacers to make up the 1mm gap.

I’m sure that is a good fix

Regards

Spacers will be critical, because that head already suffers from grip slop on the stock 5mm thick radials. It'll be that much worse with thinner bearings.

When I went to the newer feathering spindle and thrust bearings, I bought some shims that allowed me to put the thrust bearing in the middle. By spacing the radial bearings further apart, that did away with about all of the slop in the blade grips on my X50s. I'm sure the same could be done with the thinner radial bearings if you have or can locate the proper feathering spindle and thrust bearings.

Dr Ben,

Good to talk again/didn’t you used to advise on the Hirobo threads back when I had an X Spec?

Yes the spacers will have to be good.
I use “quick uk” blade grips and take up any (spindle to innner bearing) play with a small amount of Loctite.

Do they stack back to back?

If so, how about using a 7x13x4 and two 7x13x3?

That would do it. I hadn’t thought of that, but seems like a very good solution.

I also suspect the wobble some people have is from bearing movement. The TT bearings are a bit sloppy from new. Pay some money and get SKF bearings etc and most of the wear probably goes away.

Don't believe so but apparently, finding the bearings being discussed "in stock" is proving to be more difficult than Stormy Daniels keeping her mouth shut !!!
