Any hobby store will have silicon grease (Traxxas Car section)that is perfect for the spindles and dampers. As the with everything else I use Triflo oil that you can get at Wally Mart.

I use Remington gun oil with teflon. I already had it on hand for my firearms. Three seasons on four helicopters and I have never had to replace a bearing.

Use the greaser to force out the old grease to pack with new. Works great.

dude,

With a comment like that, why the hell should I help you out. I only posted the link to show what it looked like. Google is a good search engine. Since I am telling you to use Google to search for The Greaser Bearing , I guess I own it too.
Without this tool how are you going to pack those small bearing? It's not like packing a wheel bearing for a 1 to 1 car with your palm of your hands.

The original post did mention Heliproz to buy from. I only pointed out what is a good tool to use for greasing bearings.

For the other who maybe interested. Here is the link to FAQ.

If you scroll down and click the picture, it will show how it works.

You must have a phobia of the mestrual cycle. And the "gun oil" stigma makes you feel "manlier".

Almost everybody that I know uses triflow on their helis. Triflow and/or a greaser will let your bearings last almost forever.

After looking at the specs of both lubricants (gun oil and triflow) they are both almost the same. You pick the one that makes you feel better or its easier to find.
