EJ,

The screws tap into an alignment hole on the outer shaft, which is how they enter it and reach the inner shaft. If you back them out to clear the inner shaft, they still seat against the wall of the outer shaft.

(They ship this way -- E-Flite's quality control for the CXes seems good. This is only an issue if you reassemble the lower rotor head yourself.)

I'm not sure if grinding down the screws is a good idea; right now, all four lower-rotor screws are identical and interchangeable, which is awfully nice.

You're wise to gather info before the CX arrives. I think a lot of folks are down on the CX (and, likely, other micro helis) because they didn't take the time to learn it.
