A Note on Stock fan
When i pulled the fan from the box and inspected I was wondering what people were refering to about warp. I then disassembled it to reassmble with loctite. Upon reassembly as the screws were tightened i noticed a warp in the fan . Thinking I was either crazy now or when i first inspected it went back to the only thing that could have changed. Pulled it apart rotated 180 degrees and reassembled. It then stayed true (true as any plastic fan). So just a tip if its warped real bad try rotating it , what ever is out (fan/hub) it seemed to orient itself out for me.
RIP Roman

This is very interesting. What if this were the cause of all the fan troubles. You may be up for the Noble prize Jackson.I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

I think with the plastic fan, that overtightening the bolts contributed to the warping... Mine looked perfect until I started tightening too much, I backed it to normal and it stayed true, then I used lots of locktite....But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

Make sure you check those screws after a few flights. I did the exact same thing and lost two of the screws.

Fly a gallon then pull it. I bet it rubs the shroud when loaded up. Mine was perfect with lots of room. Still rubbed after I flew it. I'm sure it will run better than the first way would have.

Heh. Never know maybe you got the one in a million. I have no idea when mine rubs, but the marks aren't getting deeper and the magnets have stayed put since the beginning.

BTW. I block sanded the fins down .5 mm , gave me 1.5mm clearance top and bottom (in theory, mic'd out off bird, and hard to tell exact after install) When I practice fit it was just to close of tolerance, atleast for my liking?RIP Roman
