I'd recommend either the Esky Lama (v3 or v4, doesn't matter), or the Esky Honeybee FP. The Lama's are coaxial counter-rotating (co-co) and are fairly...

It's not likely that anything could have shifted forward. The battery is pretty well enclosed in foam. I (and others) have opened it up and shaved a little foam out to move the battery forward. ...

Yeah, it's somewhat common for there to be copper shavings inside the controller shorting out the throttle at different positions. You can try to open it up and clean it out, or just return it.
