Wheres the best place in US to get parts?

I finished sizing all the ball links tonight and attaching the head and realized.. i have two jesus pins and no set screw to hold it in.. i checked the box, every bag, the floor.. it didnt come with a set screw.... so now i gotta buy one so the head doesnt fall off when i fly

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

Most of the Ace Hardware Stores usually stock the small metric nuts and screws.

Fly it like you stole it!

parts
a good place to get these kind of parts is Micro fasteners(you can find them online). I have ordered sets screws from these guys. I keep a jar of set screws on my flight box. you never know when your going to need one. Also the smaller ones i never use twiced i just replace them. It seem that after one use they are more likely to strip.

You should have a small bag of spare parts that come with your Synergy. Check there you will find what you want.

Go to Ace hardware. They should have what you are looking for. As for parts, I have been getting all of my parts from Ricks. They have had everything I have needed so far short of a canopy. But I found one of those on here. That and I got one from Arizona Heli. It should be shipping Monday I believe. So I am set.

As for parts missing. My kit was missing the spacer that goes between the boom supports at the bottom of the frames. A good friend on mine made me one, and I ordered a stock replacement from Ricks to replace the actuall part that goes there. I was not real happy having to order that little part. But I didn't want to go through the hastle of trying to get Synergy RC to replace it. Not that I didn't think that they wouldn't, as I am sure they would have. I was just ordering other stuff at the time. So I ordered that as well. It was only $3.00, so all in all it was not that big of a deal.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

You must have gotten my Jesus pin. I've got an extra bearing in that bag, and no jesus pin. Is this something I can pick up locally? Craig said he'd get one out to me, but it'd be nice to keep building.
