So I was cleaning out some things in the garage and found some of my old USMC photos I though Id share. If I remember correctly these where during CAX at 29 Palms 1997 (CH-46 shots) and 1999 (CH-53 Super Stallion)

What an experience it was to ride in these two machines.... by far the CH-53 Super Stallion was the best, what a smooth flying machine this is (it's like riding in a Cadillac) and for it's size, it's surprisingly maneuverable!! I got a chance to participate in various exercises involving the Super Stallion though only have pics of this one with the USMC Landing Support Company and the 24th MEU.

Here is a cool video to give you a small glimpse of the LSC (Landing Support Company) in action during part of a training op.

In this video I walk you through the basics on how to replace your bearings for brushless motors. I'm using the Orange Seal Ceramic bearings kit from Bocabearings.com for this Hacker A30-10XL motor.
