    No grease on the pinion or main gear. If you must use a lube, use a dry graphite or something similar. Grease will only collect dust and grit and make a big mess, and possibly cause accelerated wear as a result of the accumulation. I never use lube on my pinions or main gears and never have wear issues beyond what I would call "normal".

    I had a CX2,it was useless outside,so I never flew it.I was messing with a CB180,realized the CX2 powertrain would drop right in it.Bought all the parts I needed and did the swap,and stuck a huge 1200 Mah 25c battery in it I had that didn't fit in anything I had.Ended up with a great heli,but,it wore out gears like crazy,since the CX only has those tiny little gears on it.I started running Lebelle white Teflon grease with graphite mixed in it,it dramatically increased the gear life.I only run enough to barely make the gear wet looking,no globs,I wipe off excess before running it after spinning it 10-20 times by hand to spread the lube.I have no problems with dirt buildup...I mean,what dirt,unless you fly it in a sandstorm? The only thing is a tiny bit of grease thrown off it here and there,barely noticeable..

    Heavy oils will definately attract dust and dirt, I would steer clear of them!

    I always flush bearing with the tri-flow and soak up excess - silicone spray is good for gears and especially belts, keeps static down so electronics don't get spiked!
