    Vf3 cage failure

    Pics show the centre section of the cage has failed and has dropped two read petals. I also found a piece of the cage in number three reed cage, jammed in a petal holding it open. is the failure of these cages common they have only done about 20hrs.
    Maybe ingress of a foriegn body.Dont know what though cant find anything.
