Default Where to buy quality bearings in Europe

Hello guys,

I bought a bunch of bearings for my protos380 at a german store. The thing is, that they wont last long (10-15 flights), or even are notchy from the very beginning.
The problem are the dimensions of the bearings, which seems to be not supported from any quality producer which i know of. I can only find them with the brand name ZEN.

Does anybody have a reliable source where i can stock up all or most of the bearings used in the protos380 (atm most important the tail bearings)? (of course with reasonable shipping costs).

Otherwise i would have to order from banggood and hope for the best....

Err... you realise MSH is a European brand? Just order the bearings from them, or any of their European resellers.

Parts for the 380 aren't that expensive, it's only a medium size heli.

I did realize it.
Basically i am not a cheap guy, who is trying to make money out of everything or safe money at any cost. But i have some troubles spending much more money as needed and this is the case with after sale bearings. I like to stock up bearings and then the sum adds up quite a bit.

I tried to figure out their site, but i am unable to find any possibility to add something to a cart, or do you have to order per mail?
