" ...  Cons: before use you have to remove the top cabin, remove the inner plastic, disconnect the tiny cramped electrical wires from the motor disconnect the cooling hose from the motor, lift out the motor from it's mount, remove the propeller, slide the drive shaft in to the hull, attempt to pour grease down inside the propeller shaft tube, then do everything in reverse. ... I say "attempt" because it is a grease that is too thick to flow down the tube and you realize you did it all for naught- oiling with the supplied oil isnt possible.  ...  "
