All of mine have a little play in and out. Going on the third flying season with them like that. Not sure it's anything to be worried about.....

Check to make sure the big socket head cap screw on the rear of the motor is tight. Mine came loose and the motor was beginning to pull apart.

I have 3 of them and they all push in and pull out a very small amount. You can feel that by pushing in and out on the tip of the prop.

Like Chris said above, just make sure the big bolt is tight, as it is basically what holds the motor together. If this is tight, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Q80-8m question

Every bolt is tight'n :-)
So then i just can say that this is normal, because i have now asked 6 people and every one have play, my a60-6xs has none, but maybe this hacker is built diffrent.
