Shadow on heli blades

I just noticed a weird shadow effect. Obviously the flybar casts a shadow of the canopy (!) on the rotor blades from above. This is especially visible on koax helis like the Axe EZ or Nemo's Twister Bell. It can be also observed though on normal helis.
Doesn't seem to be influenced by the shadow quality setting. As soon as shadows are enabled, the "ghost shadows" appear.

Ok, sorry, overlooked this.
Then again, the problem is much more pronounced with coax helis - probably mainly because there are two rotors and maybe because the flybar is nearly as large as the rotors.
