It seems the best way to attach the rex canopy mount on the Blade is on the anti-rotation guide. How are they attached to the guide?
The mounts I bought are attached with allen screws...how do I use those to attach the mounts to the anti-rotation guide?

This is a link to what I bought: http://www.eboyztoyz.net/index.php?op=showitem&sku=8382

You will need an all threaded rod at least 30mm long (+/-). I used two rods. I also used the eflite blue cup washers turned backwards to space the mounts further out.

You can also cut two bolts down to make the rods.

i like that link Steven. it is a better part than the plastic ones i got. the plastic ones i got had 2 2.5mm rods that screw into the location at the anti rotation bracket.

but, the anti-rotation bracket won't be secured because in stock form there are 2 screws that tighten from both sides.

i ordered a length of fully threaded rod. HLRE0541 THREADED ROD M2.5 X 8.5 inches, drill all the way through with a drill slightly larger than 2.5mm, cut the rod to length and screw and tighten those t-rex canopy mounts on both sides.

i know it is overkill. and probably makes no sense. i can't believe the rods are on back order from hobby lobby.

I machined some out of brass, with an end the same diameter as the original rod and epoxied them in, works great!
