Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Turnigy Graphite Powder Dry Lubricant (warning)

In today';s hobbyking email I was linked to this new product;

https://hobbyking.com/en_us/oem-graphite-powder-lube-7g.html

QuoteAn all-purpose, dry powder lubricant which is both odorless and non-toxic. Use to guard against sticking, wear, and corrosion. Can be used on all-types of material, including: metal, wood, plastic, and rubber.


It';s being sold in hobbyking';s  ';FPV Racing Drones ›  Accessories'; section.

Graphite is electrically conductive. If you use this lubricant be very careful about getting it on anything electronic. I think you could use it on the motors but if you used too much and it started flying off when they spun up you could get all sorts of problems.

You can also use a soft pencil for graphite powder.
Your right about it being conductive. I have used it in the past to repair broken PCB tracks in keyboards simply be drawing over the broken area a few times. I have a keyboard which was repaired like this over 5 years ago and it';s still in everyday use.

Looks like the lubricant used for the action of small arms in a desert environment when oil would just stick to sand

I expect it works very well for certain things. I just think hobbyking should let buyers know it';s a conductive powder if they are selling it in the multirotor section.
