Boca bearings, oil or no oil?

Postby 360Rocket » 05 Mar 2013, 14:45

Good idea the oil the boca bearings before install? or use no oil at all?

WD40? light oil? heavy oil? Lithium grease? what works best?

They come packed with grease, so you don't have to oil them at the start. Oil them about every 2 hours of flight time. The Lightning Lube I sell is what's recommended by Boca, but you can also find something called 3-2-1 oil at most local hobby shops.

I still have a few shaft sets in stock. Unfortunately, I can't carry stock Parrot parts. Your best bet for a motor is eBay.

you don't need to oil or lube the bearings they come pre packed with it! also the thicker the lube the longer the bearing will last how ever the more friction there will be which will effect flight time. the lighter the lube the less time the bearing will last if run dry for a long period of time but it will spin much more free. I never recommend people use WD40 on bearings because it attracts moisture.

I used to use a solvent based cleaning spray used on firearms, forget what it's called now but was great to clean out all the gunk out of shielded bearings back in my RC car days then a drop of your favourite lube kept them in spec.

Mind you we don't run our quads through mud and dusty bumpy tracks like I did my 2 and 4WD buggies. :)
