My Eflite 480 brushless motors shaft is bent a little due to a minor crash. I unscrewed both screws that hold the shaft in place, and the shaft won't even budge. What gives? Anyone else had this problem? I wan't to get the replacement shaft so that my prop turns tru again. Suggestions, thnx!

Push harder! Seriously. You might need a vice or press.

Another 3DHS convert...
To remove the shaft on most motors, I usually put the motor in the vice and take a thin nail on the shaft and gently hammer the nail until the shaft comes out.
