Hi Kelly
I don't think it's a huge problem right now and you did the right thing by tracking it down and lubing it up, Just keep an eye on it like everthing else good preventative maintinence will pay off. Also keep a close eye on that little screw that holds the butterfly to the shaft, I had one come loose once so check that every so often. Keep up the good work and fly hard.
