Helicopter - Hobby

Model Helicopter Bearings

We have a very wide selection of bearings to suit model helicopters.

Model helicopters use many bearings and bushes throughout their structure. A bush is also known as a plain bearing. It’s a bearing without any rolling elements (balls or rollers). Often, bushes can be replaced with ball bearings for smoother operation.

You can purchase online at Small Parts and Bearings Online.

As with all applications requiring bearings you will get the best results if you choose the best bearing for the job. A simple guide to choosing the most appropriate bearing follows...

Bearing Type Performance
Metal Shielded
  • Freer running - less drag
  • Shorter life - allows contaminants to enter more easily.
Rubber Sealed
  • More drag
  • Longer life - better at keeping contaminants out.
Grease filled
  • More drag
  • Longer life - better at keeping contaminants out and protecting the internal parts of the bearing.
Oil filled
  • Freer running - less drag
  • Shorter life - less protection for internal parts of the bearing.
Ceramic Hybrid (Ceramic balls in Metal Races)
  • Possible Longer life - depending on other factors such as sealing and lubrication types.
