Default Bee V2 main shaft replacement tip

Hey all,

In my travels around the forum I've noticed a lot of people complaining about difficulty replacing the stock main shaft on their bees, having to split the frame and all, or trying not to destroy components trying to remove the pin that locates the main gear on the shaft. So I had a tinkering brainwave last night, and managed to easily remove the small pin using a walkera pinion puller to push it out. I then opened the hole up very slightly using a round needle file so the pin is snug enough to stay put while installing a gear, but loose enough to pull out with pliers when needed. Anyway I thought I'd share my minor victory, has certainly removed a lot of the pain from shaft maintenance!
