Took a couple of shots of an omega 72 but its the same for all the omegas. You want to try get the oil between the two races and one to two drops is great.
Dude, thanks!!! Also, yes that 10 flight thing would make me crazy! On a day off I probably get atleast 25 flights in. (maybe more but I never counted next time I will count ) So would you say I should oil them every 50 flights or so?

I used to oil my bearings every 10-20 flights until I found the oil attracted so much dust which in turn wore out the bearings faster than not oiling the bearings, now I do not oil bearings, I just change when needed, works for me

A while back Scorpion motors, especially in Helis, were known to have bearing issues so they recommended frequent oiling. That's not an issue with the Omegas, Hackers and Motrolflys that I have so I oil them if I due a tune up on a plane, maybe once or twice a season. A litte goes a long way.

Ok then I will do one drop since my motor has seen really high temps but then probably won't do it again. You guys are flying off grass and getting dust in there imagin me, I fly off dry dirt.
