I have a bottle of Trinity Royal Oil that I bought like 10 years ago. It has been in my toolbox in the garage and probably only used it a few times. I sold all my R/C stuff years ago and I just found this bottle of stuff and the cap is still on it. Now that I am back into R/C, is this oil still good and can I use it? I need to oil up my motor and wheel bearings, but I don't know if the oil that I have is still good...thanks in advance for the input.

10 years? wow.

I dunno if oil neccesarily "spoils" or not. I say if it isn't light faded, try it out and see if it works untill you can get a newer bottle. Royal oil is also a very light machine oil, used to protect the bearing, yet not greatly dimish rolling resistance. If longegevity between cleaning periods is your goal, royal oil probably isn't your best bet.
