What is the latest on the issue with the needle bearings falling out of the 360 drive. I heard the well known rattle yesterday, and turned the drive over to see a needle bearing fall to the floor. Does Hobie have a fix for this yet?

Get a warranty claim in for a replacement drive. Has to do with missing bearings that allowed the flange to get off center and allow bearings to come out. This has been corrected by enlarging the flange and quality control measures during assembly.
