Lubrication, what parts and what type?

Postby please don't crash » Wed Sep 15, 2010 10:43 pm

What parts should be lubricated on the Intrepid EB? What type of lubricant should be used? I don't want to use the wrong type and find out it hurt something. I also don't want to add anything that may not be needed and end up cause dirt to collect.

I use a light machine oil, like 3 in 1.

I lubricate the main shaft where the swash and washout hub slide up and down, and the tail output shaft where the pitch slider moves back and forth.

Also lubricate the eyelets and shoulder bolt joint, where they attach to the Tail blade grips.

That's it.

That is exactly what I did. I used 3 in 1 oil and used a Q-tip with the cotton head cut off. I was able to add a dab to all the ball sockets on the linkages and pretty much anything else that moved. I wasn't sure about putting any on the gears so I did so sparingly. Just enough to have a light film on them. Thanks for the information Chris.
