Upgraded Desolator with Fang revamped motors and Worker (white) wheels in the stock cage. 50% of stock nerf darts are whirly birds. I have one Accustrike dart and that flies ok. Also seems to be chewing up the darts. Fyi, I added the same Worker wheels on two other blasters running Meshel 2.0 motors, stock cage and no no whirly birds and no dart damage. Looking for feedback from the experts. Thanks!

From this I'm going to assume that when you say "stock nerf darts" you mean elites? Those are junk and the source of your whirlbirds. Accustrikes will be much better, as you've already noticed.
Also seems to be chewing up the darts.
Those workers are serrated, right? That happens with toothy wheels. Darts become an expendable resource. In the future, stick to smooth. You may lose some FPS with all other variables held constant, but it's worth it in terms of dart survivability.

Could you take a picture down the barrel? Might help with better troubleshooting.
While elite darts are pretty bad, I don't recall having that many whirlybirds when using them. I suspect that the wheels may be misaligned (too far down the shaft, not far down enough, not equally far down the shaft).
