Does anyone else have the same problem with their spindle shaft bending. The Hardened steel one does the same thing. Any clue where I can fing some stronger ones.

Not to start anything but.....

I just measured a Blade 400 spindle and i get 38mm long.

I also have a Rex 450 spindle here and it's 40mm long.

Is there something different with the blade grips that make it work out???

I guess if you used 2mm worth of shim washers it would work, maybe, kinda.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

Yes, you can dremel off a mm on each side, or use more shims(which is what i did)There is a thread about it somewhere.

I grind some off as well, but only on one side. Still room for screw. Works well. Still they will bend if you look at them wrong.
