Why would he?

That mainshaft is way too thin inside (in my opinion)...... no wonder it sheared off. I am all for weight savings, but they could double the thickness of that shaft wall and still retain lightness.

Sorry to hear of the damage

First off its a Mikado brand heli

Next this section gets a lot of views and Im hopeing a structures person
can chime in and explain this. This could happen to any heli brand and its scary dangerous that it happend. Usually we are right off the deck close to the flight line...this time we were a little higher and BOOM! The blades could have easily found their way into us!

What's the diameter of the mainshaft? Maybe you could swap it out with another brand. I'm guessing it's 10mm, if you measure the length and where the holes are on it, I'm sure we can come up with something that will work from another heli. Also, you should get in touch with Mikado, I'm sure they'd want to hear about it.
