Which LockTite where???

I am assembling my first heli and saw that it is good to use locktite.

There are 3 types

Blue - weakest
Green - for bearing installs - How? Anywhere else?
Red - torch to remove!

which do I use and where?

Do I use it on set screws and frame screws as well? Where shouldn't I use it?

Finless Bob made a video all about Loctite, the different colours, where to use it and how to apply it. I'm on my cellphone right now and don't have the link at hand. Just do a Google search for Finless Bob build videos.

I use Loctite 222(purple) on all metal to metal and Loctite 603 (green) Retaining compound for bearings.
Loctite 222 is all you will need on metal to metal,anything stronger and it might be a problem getting things loose,its easy to remove even on small set screws.I use it on my 1/8th IC buggy and those things vibrate and not lost a bolt,nut or set screw yet.
Generally you use stronger loctite's on lager nuts,bolts etc as theres less chance of snapping or rounding heads,or bolts that wont need to be removed after assembly.
