My brand new, out of the box, Silver/white Revolt 30 has been shipped back to Towerhobbies due to the motor and flex shaft/stuffing tube being out of alignment. It looks (from the pictures) that your boat was fine.
I am waiting on an exchange for the blue/white version. I didn't care for the bubbles under the stickers on the silver version. I really hope the motor and flex shaft alignment is better on the next one
Well thats stinks. I'm sorry yours was misaligned. If you look at the first picture in the "Under the Hatch" section, you'll see the motor should be up and off to the right side of the hull, enough to line up with the stuffing tube being offset to the right as well. I hope your new boat will be correct.
