Noob question on Aero-Hawk

I just received an aero hawk I picked up on ebay. I was checking it out and noticed that rotary head seems to pivot freely in one direction but not the other. In one direction it seems to catch on itself. If I push it, it wil go past the point it catches, but it is not a smooth motion. I haven't taken it apart but one bearing has some rust on the outside. I don't think the bearings are preventing it from moving though.

Is this a known problem with any micros?
How much range does the rotary head need?

I never fixxed it but the rotor spins smooth and haven't had any problems in the any of my 10-20 flights.

I did drop by century hobby today to pick up a new set of blades (broke mine last weekend) and a 370 motor. I noticed the 370 motor mounts are slightly wider, but remember when I took the stock motor off, that the screws fit through a channel and not through holes.

I will post up the results of the 370 motor later.
