Hey all -

You know those really tiny phillips screws that hold the vertical and horizontal fins on to the tail boom clamps? Well, I lost one of them (after dropping it).

My lhs doesn't have anything that small, even in the trains sections where they have really tiny brass screws.

I really don't want to buy a 'Tail Boom Support Clamp Set' for just one screw. Does anyone have any suggestions/sources?

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Regards,

Air_Screw

I'm sure http://www.smallparts.com carries little screws like that, but I got the extra fin clamp set to easilly mount my Gyro on the tail, and have a couple extra micro-screws now...

I had a similar problem and found some in an old broken camera that I found at the house. The funny thing is that I also found a motor in it that I now have in the tail of my pic pro. It was the same motor the pro came with. I would imagine that if you take apart any small elec. gizmo you will find those screws( maybe an old walkman)?

P.S. you can also use 2mm cap screws or even 2-56 crews. Mine are all 2-56 button head(rounded but still allen) screws now. You have to cut them with a dremel to the correct length. The button head look much cleaner!

Thanks for the response! I'll take a look at http://www.smallparts.com for the screws. At first it looked like they only had machine screws, but then I saw the wood screw section.

I checked http://www.smallparts.com and ten screws would cost more than $12.00 plus shipping.

Also, good idea using the clamp as a gyro mount.

I'm still on the hunt for those little buggers! I might just have to buy that clamp set.

If you have some spare the Hitec HS50 screws to secure the servo arm are the same size

Usually the servos come with a couple.
