Default Ball bearing question

Hey everyone,

I have been working on fixing my S/S up for another attempt at a maiden flight. I have replaced the drive shaft with a new one but I broke one of the bearings. None of the LHS have a 4x7x2mm bearing but they do have a 4x7x2.5mm bearing. Should I even worry about the extra .5 mm?

I don't think it will make much of a difference being that it will only stick out slightly. I just don't know if I should worry about it or not. I know there is atleast 1mm of clearance between the gear and the motors so that shouldn't be a problem.


Any suggestions? Thanks again!

I have figured it out... I got the 4x7x2.5 bearing and it works fine. I also just drilled out the props and prop saver so I'm all set to go again. Hopefully my first flight on my first pack will go well and I can strap my camera on for the next pack

Thanks for the link, I'll def. bookmark that one. Seems like they have tons. Thankfully my LHS had the ones I needed, granted they were Traxxas
