Ok, thanks Cherubs 9, I just sent them an email requesting a new nose gear, right side landing gear and a white LED!

I have seen this problem before (on another bird altogether) and the motor gear was not making sufficient contact with the other worm gears. Since you have a new one coming, no big deal. but on the one I had, I opened up the casing and put a thin piece of foam between the housing and motor and put it back together. This pushed the motor closer and tighter to the other gears for better contact and no problem since. You could play around with your old one now, nothing to lose!
I'm am still eyeing this one maybe for a winter build.
Good luck with the maiden!
Cheers, DSA
