Lubricants and locktite

TIP: Another blogger suggested that I try Tri-Flow Teflon lubricant. Wow does this stuff work. Use it on metal to metal shafts and bearings. The video shows how freely my V200D01's parts move. Notice how long the rotors turn after I power down.

Lubricated2 (0 min 15 sec)

NOTE: Don't use TriFlow on the white tail gears because it will make the tail gears slip on the drive-shaft.

It's difficult to get to the lower main-Shaft bearing, but the TriFlow nozzle tube is small enough to get between the Main gear and the upper frame.
