Luckily our heli allows for dropping a couple of drops of oil on the one way without disassembing it so that is not a problem for me.
I have also run many OWBs on the 450x dry without any problems. Do your bearings slip from the sleeve or do they just lock-up? Many of the times it is just the sleeve that needs replacement and the actual bearing can be reused.

I've ran it stock, and cleaned then special one way lube... fails either way. Suddenly no drive...
