I am re-building my head using the HeliMax Aluminum parts and am a bit confused about the screws attaching the seesaw to the hub.

I only seem to have one in the (HMXE8609 Center hub with bearings.)

Surely there should be one on either side of the hub?

Can anyone tell me what screws/washers/stand-offs etc. should be used here?

Thanks!

After a recent MX400 crash, I lost those same parts (if they're the same as on a plastic head).

I emailed HeliMax for the part numbers. I sent them the attached picture so they'd know what I was referring to.

They emailed me back with (if these are the parts you need):
- HMXE7343 pan head screw 2x4mm
- HMXE8807 Stand offs

Thanks!

They do make it hard when they dont supply all the parts in pack - and no assembly diagram either.

Now for the CCPM frame - no assembly diagram with that either!!!

Update - just got my alu. hub w/bearings today. It came with both screws (black) and 2 bearings.
You should contact your retailer or online source for, at least, repalcement screws if you haven't found suitable ones yet.

I "rolled back" to the non-bearing aluminum head and used the screws that you suggested plus a stand-off - It is working fine.

Part of my reason for doing this is that I also lost one of the bearings which was listed (on Tower Hobbies where i buy parts) as a 3*8mm bearing - it is NOT - it is much smaller - so... while I try to get the right bearing!!!

The same Tower hobbies parts breakdown does not list any screws - but oddly shows just one in the photo!!!

Maybe i'll just order another one and pray!!
