I never done it cause dirt will stick in the teeth. Which can cause teeth to chip or break. Also grease will be everywhere on the machine and fuselage.

Mikado sells a brush on dry lubeI didn't crash. I just ran out of airspeed, altitude, and ideas all at the same time!

Funny thing is..

on both Nitro and gas machines the gears get "lubricated" via contact with the exhaust. (in some cases not much mind you but some)...

On my electric machines I place a VERY small dab of Grimracer Speed Grease on one tooth of the main gear and just allow it to propagate as it would.

I am not going to make a mess BUT.. i am not going to run them bone dry..

Nice. Exactly what I would have said. Saved me from posting.

(Edit: Except, I don't have "Grimracer Speed Grease".)

Triflow synthetic grease and dry fluid applied once to main gear 2 - 3 flights clean excess done. Quieter and more efficient thereafter imo.

Did I see Grimracer batteries in there too?(!) And did that end with a big ol' Hobbico banner? Ahhh- how times have changed.

LOL... super funny..LOL

I design the Optograb and now look what happen!

Using Grimracer speed grease I can grease a shaft LIKE NO OTHER!

Gota say.. that was a fun gig.. not my first rodeo in the industry.. The customers were what its all about. Just having a good time. Then.. the hardest part was reading the lives lost when somebody would drown trying to retrieve a dead boat. you could say all you wanted in the manual.. on the box.. or whatever.. and.. it still happen.. its still hard to take.

Every-time.. same thing.. "he was a good swimmer"..

And in the end they just wanted to go out and have a good time.. one time a father and son BOTH drown in front of the family.. not our product but MY INDUSTRY.. man that was hard to hear.

OK.. lets come back... my problem.. not yours..

I did videos and voice overs too.. that was fun..

I designed all kinds of cool boats. Still do.. just for me now...

LETS FLY SCALE!

I must say that I don't chime in here very much but, this Grimracer keeps a grin on my face. I'll have to meet this guy sometime.

Thanks for the kindness..

As it goes.. I MUST BE INSANE.. because.. i am CrAzY about this stuff. (Tommy Chong)

The people we know and get to know are the biggest fun for me. The Helicopters (truth be told..all aspects of this hobby) is merely a media for making buddy's.

This would be no fun with out the people we meet.

Hope to meet and hang out some day too.
