Hi all,

While troubleshooting a shake and wobble problem I found two B version grip bearings that were notchy after only about 30-40 flights.

The root cause of my wobble problems turned out to be a split in my mainshaft that was almost impossible to see with the head attached.

I did a bunch of research and finally found the 10 pack of Boca bearings. The part number is:

#RCTPX-MR681-XZ/W1.12 and the shipped cost was $19.99 so there was a price increase but not bad at ~ $2 each.

Good Luck, Don

I have a set of ten, they are 1.12 not 2.0 thickness, is that ok? I think they are supposed to be like 4.0x1.5x2.0 ?? noticed that and have not used them, have t-rex in now myself.
And I'm not saying that yours are 1.12 but would like ta know. I ordered from the same link a bunch of us did!!

No, the correct size is 1.5x4.0x1.12mm for the A & B stock grips. The Walkeras measure 1.133m and the Aligns measure 1.2mm both of which are the wrong size.
