Ive had an accedent

Well i just got the thing for one thing. But i did train on the simulator for quite a while so i really don't have much of an excuse. But anyways.......I bent the prop shaft on my mini cub. Yep hit a brick building because i was flying in high wind.The bend is barely noticeable, but you can feel it when you roll it in your fingers.But it doesn't seem to have changed the planes performance. So my question is. Do i really need to fix it? Or will not fixing it hurt something else?
P.S. One more Q. Is there a forum topic that talks about painting RC models on here?

You really should fix it. You have a rotating shaft that is near perfectly balanced suddenly thrown out of balance, it could shake your plane apart eventually wearing out parts sooner than they should be.

It's maybe a $5 part.

P.S. Yes http://www.rcgroups.com/painting-and...hing-tips-497/

Welcome and enjoy.
