Default Where To Buy 3mm Motor Shaft

A buddy of mine crashed his Alfa F-86 and upon further inspection the 3mm motor shaft is slightly bent...The motor is one of the Jet Screamer motors from Hobby Lobby...Hobby Lobby doesn't sell replacement shafts and I have seen other motors where the shaft is replaceable...Is it even possible to replace the shaft on a Jet Screamer motor???...The motor does have set screws at the back of the motor but none that I can find at the front...TIA for any input!!!

Well, I managed to remove the shaft...Pretty easily I might add...Now, if someone could chime in and point me in the right direction as to where to find some 3mm shaft material...

How about contacting Littlescreamers and asking them about a replacement shaft.

Thanks but these appear to be extensions and not the main motor shaft...What I need is the main shaft that goes all of the way through the center or the motor...I'm thinking about obtaining some 3mm aircraft drill bits and cutting them to length...These are long drill bits that have a long smooth shank and only a short section of cutting flutes....
