Scorpion recommends oiling motor bearings every 10 to 12 flights!
To keep your brushless motor operating at maximum performance, it is
important that the bearings in your motor be properly maintained. This
is especially true of helicopter motors that often spin in excess of
45,000 RPM. In an average flight, the motor in a 450 size helicopter
spins around almost a quarter million times! Without proper
lubrication, the balls in the bearings can wear out quickly, leading to
We have put together a motor bearing lubrication kit to help extend the
life of the bearings in your Scorpion brushless motor. This kit
contains a 25cc bottle of bearing lubricant and two needle point
applicator nozzles. One nozzle is 1" long, and will work with the 22mm
and 30mm motors, and the other nozzle is 1.5" long to use with 40mm and
The oil included in the kit is a special product that actually bonds to
the metal parts, and resists being thrown out by the high speed and
centrifugal forces inside the bearings. A small drop placed on each
bearing about once every 10 flights is enough to maintain proper
lubrication to insure the longest possible life for your motor bearings.
The oil is safe for use on Acrylics, Polyester, Nylon, Vinyl, Delrin,
Teflon, Formica, Polyethylene and Polypropylene. It is also safe on
most painted surfaces.
There is no visible effect on Buna-N, Viton or Neoprene rubber
products, so it is safe around most fuel lines, o-rings and other
