I just removed my main gear to lube the sprag on my Fury 60. When I did this I noticed that the main shaft had a major groove worn into it. It looks as if the main shaft was spinning inside the lower bearing. The bearing itself is not siezed and seems to spin free. The heli was also very smooth and had no sign of binding anywhere in the drive system.

Has anyone else seen this? Should you lock tight the main shaft to the bearings?

This has happend to me with my raptor, after 3 years on the original mast it wore down, so now I put a little bit of CA glue on the mast and slip it into the bearing, wait for the CA to harden before you slip the mast into the bearing, the CA just makes the mast a little bigger and more solid. ONly apply CA where the mast will sit in the bearing.
