Default Trex 150 Swash plate + shaft bind issue

Does anyone have any issues with the swashplate tilting into and actually "contacting/rubbing" against the shaft?

Test:
1.) Remove blade.
2.) Turn on and hold in hands.
3.) Move cyclic to any extreme position.
4.) Also, move left stick to either extreme up/down.
5.) Do you see the swash rubbing against shaft?

If you have plastic shaft this "binding" will force the inner and outer to seperate. Hmmm..sounds familiar? If you have aluminum shaft? This bind will literally cut it's own head!!! Look for a scoring or notching on the shaft.

I see absolutely no info on line about this. I suspect align's dirty little secret. I've played with limiting the dual rate, but no good.
