It's a known fault - the (old) one way bearing housing wasn't strong enough
to withstand hard abuse. Mine went, when I suddenly gave full pitch. I have
a Hyperion (Scorpion) 4025-1100 on 6s in my Beam.

(I didn't know then what had happened, so I lost too many revs to land well.
But I broke only the plastic undercarriage. It's a sturdy bird)

The kit now comes with a OWB v2 set (or kit) with a main gear. Since the new
OWB is thicker, it needs a larger hole in the main gear. The set not expensive,
and it was about the only flaw in the design.

I also bought the blue anodized swash stopper and the new main blade grip steering arms.
And now a new, sexy red/grey canopy. After all, I need it to be visible.
