I'm building a flybarless so no flybars, tho the comment about main gears is a bit disconcerting. Most of the mass and kinetic energy is in the propellers so the main gear shouldn't be carrying any load if the motor was turned off o_0
In a lot of my crashes the motor keeps going until I think to flip the kill switch. Unfortunately I don't get to it before it strips a spot in the main gear.

The main shaft will more often than not bend in a crash.

Hope this helps.
