Quote from: teslahed on Wednesday,November 28, 2012, 22:44:46 It';s quite often the case that new motors arrive without the proper amount of thread lock on the grub screws. Gary has recommended to me before that you should unscrew the grub screws from your motors and reapply threadlock before tightening them up again - before the first flight. I check new motors for this now - I';ve spotted a few that were not all that well held together.

Quote from: Smeagol on Wednesday,November 28, 2012, 22:53:35 Just added threadlock to my shopping list, what about lube for the motors, is this necessary and if so what is used
Quote from: Gaza07 on Wednesday,November 28, 2012, 23:47:19 As far as I know all the bearings used on these little motors are sealed both sides so I doubt you can lube em
Quote from: Gaza07 on Wednesday,November 28, 2012, 23:57:22 I can only assume they all use sealed bearings, I suppose if you can see the ball bearings then splash a bit of oil on em, but if there is a shield there isn';t much point, even if the back of the bearing was open you wouldn';t be able to get to it to lube it
