Do you have a bad main shaft? I'd just take one that you've replaced and slightly bend it with the part of a multi-tool or pliers for turning bolts. That should get it tbe'ing pretty quick!

No Problem.

 

Like I was saying a long time ago, I'm sure my experience with lionel trains'll help somewhere, and I guess this is annother time it does! I've had good experience with the similar oil that I have, and while it's not cheap, at $12/bottle (or whatever) after shipping, it's well worth it.

 

I'd suggest putting it on the small gear on the motor, turn it a little, and keep applying it to all of the teeth on it, then the small gear on the bottom of the second gear, then keep rotating until you cover every tooth on both sides. It takes time to cover the teeth, but it'll be worth it. Then, work it in by running it at LOW speeds for two to three minute. Then, repeat once every month and a half or whenever it looks like it's drying up.

I'll need to check where you can buy it, but model train oil seems like the best bet to me. I have this one bottle that I bought when the local hobby shop was closing up, but I don't know where or what brand, and it seems perfect for it. The bottle has a long metal needle that can get into tight places, and it's a non-oil based, it's some synthetic or vegital based light oil. The only issue is that it dries up after a few weeks, but still protects from wear like grease or an extra layer of protection.

 

But, I'll check around and post back on where to get it.

(oh joy, lionel experience comming in handy again)

EDIT:

Found something similar on amazon-http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005U34QIO/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=syma107heli-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B005U34QIO

Liquid Bearings. Designed for the just about exactly the same situation as these helis, and with a nice needle to put it into the hard to reach places.

How about the proper way to do a lube job and what kinds of oil can be used. I have some graphite oil and powder. Did see the bit about the Teflon oil (spray?). But just thought something a bit more comprehensive would be in order. Great job so far Bernie, you're efforts are well appreciated.

I think the only way to lube the heli is with Teflon spray but only very lightly, I dont do it myself because they seem to have plenty on them from new. But I will look into it for you.

To hold the batt in place? Yep I would, it can stop the battery moving about especially if it crashes.

how about a battery replacement.with some wire splicing and soldering.

Do you mean show how to solder the small wires ?

I will try to do some videos today about changing the battery, soldering, removing the lower shaft and gears, etc.

 

I have found a way to add some more content to the films so hope you like them.
