Finally in desperation I put a tiny drop of ca on the very top of the shaft where it would wick down into the crack. I immediately wiped off any excess glue and let the shaft cure for about 30 minutes before putting the heli back together... VOILA! PROBLEM SOLVED! I've been flying with the repaired shaft ever since with no hint of tbe.

At least one other peep has reported a cracked shaft right out of the package. I think it may happen when the holes are drilled too fast. It's worth checking out!
This is why I put a drop on my shaft for every new one I get. It has saved a lot of trouble. But, you ask, why are you replacing the shafts?? I have built several of these 120s from scratch parts!
