Does anyone know the thread pitch and size for JR transmitter sticks?

I've found some sticks made by JR that I'd like to use but I need to find out first if the thread diameter is small enough to re-tap to the Futaba/Hitec/Airtronics M3 (3mm) thread pitch.

Thanks.

After a quick trip to the local Mom 'n' Pop LHS it looks like JR uses an M4 (4mm) thread on their sticks. Bummer. I sure like those Flower Sticks, dangit.

GimbalFan,

If you really like it that much, may I suggest rethreading the Flower sticks using an M3 Heli-coil. I have not checked the books (compare the outer dia of the M3 STI tap to the inner / outer diameter of the flowers sticks) but it might work.

Just to confirm, the JR sticks are an M4 thread....

Gimbal, I'm gonna have a go at filling with JB weld and retapping to M3. I'll try it in an M4 nut for starters and let you know how it goes. Dunno where to get helicoils in the UK

Yup, mine are on their way. I'll try the helicoil that Nap suggests first and if it's a bad fit then I'll go the JB Weld/retap route. Thanks for the suggestions.

Just got a call from my LHS. Looks like even though JR is the manufacturer of these 'flower sticks' they're not distributed anywhere in the US, only overseas!

Now I want 'em even more, dammit! Help!
