Default Outrage 1700KV Bearing Replacement

Re Outrage 1700KV Bearing Replacement:

Are there any instructions on how to do this? Is it a similar process to replacing the bearings in the scorpion -8 motor?

Does anyone know what size the bearings are, how many etc?

Anyone else felt the need to do this?

My heli has started to get noisier and make a screaching noise, I wondered if it might be the motor bearings. In the past I replaced the scorpion -8 bearings with ceramic ones and it quietened it down quit a bit.

Any comments/experiences welcome.

Cheers Geoff.

The motor separates easily with the pinion off. Look at the magnets too. If you need to change the bearing then put the new one in the freezer and use a soldering iron to heat the case by the bearing to get the old one out. Once removed put a thin layer of bearing retainer where the outer race wall will sit. Insert the new one fresh from the freezer.

Default Main shaft

Just wondering, Have you checked your main shaft bearings?? Could be them making the noise. My G5 in new, about 20 packs thru and I'm a beginner. I noticed right away that my main bearings had a lot of play, forward and back!!! Not up and down!! So much that I'm gonna replace them and I'm wondering if anyone also has this issue???? If so I would get new bearings somewhere other than the G5 replacements.
Otherwise Man I really LOVE this heli!!!!! Un godly power!!!! Handling is great but the power WOW!!!! AND long flights!!!!
