What kind of oil do you use on the sliding parts like the tail pitch slider and the swashplate?
I have been using something called Triflow but I would like to hear what you prefer.....

xv-townboy, do you have the brand name of the oil that is used in electric hair trimmers? Does Canadian Tire carry them? Unfortunately we don't have London Drugs out in the east coast.

you can check wherever they sell hair clippers.i use the wahl brand oil myself but i'm sure any brand would work..also check out this thread.lotsa good ideas as well :wink:

I use Triflow, seems to work pretty good. I'm just kind of curious, is there a reason why you want to use something different, are you not happy with Triflow?

The oil from the exhaust does the job of that fine :) The only things I like to oil are the small bearings in the control system.

I've used gun oil when necessary.
