Do you mean the lugs on the top? Cant remember straight of and I have not got a chop here beside me but I think you can break of the two top lugs and drill a hole where they were and shuv a carbon rod tru both holes and cut and glue in place. A rod from a hummingbird or something would do the job.
If you can find a small screw that you can work with to do the job then go with it.

If you just want to repair one side, I used a 4-40 drill/tap set, then get a white 4-40 nylon screw. If you have lots of patience you can dremel a tip back on the end to snap into the canopy, or drill the canopy hole out and just keep the screw head on and put in on with your fingernail or small screw driver, will take a few more seconds for canopy removal that way.

The problem you have running a rod all the way across is it will cover the ends of the HS-55 servos, making it very hard to get them out

Broke one of mine early on, and did similar to what Joe said-
I cut the other one off, and drilled a small hole the size of the tip of the stand off. I then cut a wire rod of the same diameter to fit through the holes and stick out both sides (used the good one as a guide). To hold it there and provide the larger diameter "shoulder" I just stripped some thick wire insulation off 16gu lamp cord. Works sweet!

This works great on mine....so do yourself a favor....

Put some velcro on the bottom of the battery tray and some inside the canopy. To hell with those mounts!!
