Default Compass Motor Shaft

Finished building the 6HV and took it out for it's maiden today. SOOOOO much power. Anyway started going through the usual tests and threw a flip. As the heli was inverted the head speed died like I'd gone in to normal so I hit hold and autoed, no damage love the hang time.

I got it home and pulled the motor, thinking it maybe the motor pinion, nope turns out it was the shaft in the can. I can actually pull the whole thing out!!!

Question is, can I just loctite the shaft back in to the can or is it actually faulty?

I haven't had my motor apart yet but was under the impression that the shaft is a press fit in the can. If it was loose enough to come out on it's own I'm not sure I would trust Loctite to hold it unless I was desperate to fly and had no other option.
Is this a brand new motor?

If you don't get warranty on it you could also try this trick and see if the other end fits tighter.

That should be an interference fit! If you can pull it out by hand it been manufactured wrong and you should send it back! I had to press my shaft out on a drill press! Defo wrong!
