I have bought 2 CPs and both came out of the box w/ bent shafts AND Gears

I found the motor to be VERY tight against the main gear and no oval in the mount holes to ease it off. (I had to drill my own oval in one of the holes on each of the birds) I had to buy new shafts and (Since it had to be replaced anyway, I splurged for) AR Gears before flying both. Tried running 1 of them before replacing, and it shook like crazy (yes, everything was tight and straight in the blades area)

I think there is a serious problem w/ Century's jig that's drilling the holes and the tension is bending the shaft and plastic gear during shipping.

We ought to all get a free replacement shaft and aluminum gear with proof of purchase

Anybody else having this issue?

The shaft that came with mine was straight and the gear lash was smooth. I never ran it with the stock motor though... The head did wobble like crazy thanks to the plastic head block.
