JustGoFly motor shafts shearing?

I only have about 10 flights on my new JFG 400dh and the damn shaft sheared off taking my pinion with it. Should I expect this with these motors? Can anyone suggest a motor with a stronger shaft....like an AXI or something?

JGF motors have an awesome rep. You can probably get it replaced for free. What heli was this on? Maybe your gear mesh was too tight or something.

Well...that's good to hear. It was on a Honey Bee King 2. I didn't think it was too tight, but maybe something shifted that I was unaware of.
