Is this what to expect?
I had to order some tail blades so I bought some extra parts to prepare for that first whiplash crash (knock on wood). I bought two main shafts, feathering shaft and a tail shaft for spares and all three are rusted. The tail output shaft was pretty bad, never had parts show up like this. it has been awhile since I have flown a xcell heli.

No. You should return the parts and get newer stock parts. BTW, where did your order those parts from?

Rusted Whiplash parts
Unfortunately this is fairly common. I have seen quite a few parts rusted quite badly sealed up brand new in the bag. Heliproz will exchange them but I think they should work on solving their rusting issue.

Well if you just put some oil on the parts before packaging it would stop this. Im just going to hit mine with some wd-40 and scrub pad.
They need to be aware of this.

Real service is providing rust free parts initially. Why be bothered with return shipping?Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Rusty shaft
If this happens from being in the store a long time on the shelf on in a humid environment, you can put the shaft in a drill and spin it then clean it up with scotch bright pads.

I believe some shafts come coated to prevent rust, but over time the shafts can rust and I do clean them using the above method if I have to take them out for some maintenance. They do shine up like new with this method.

CRC SP-400 used on the shafts prior to packaging would end the rust issue.
