I have to remove the tail hub from a 250 but I cannot seem to find a wrench small enough for that microscopic set screw. The allen driver that comes with the 250 that is for the majority of the screws is too big. Any suggestions please?

Also still trying to find undrilled servo arms for JR 287 servos so I can use the Align balls for the links.

The set screw should 0.9 mm. If you have an SE you probably have the 1.3mm driver and not the 0.9mm.

I'm sure you will not find un-drilled arms. I just drilled a new hole where I wanted it next to the pre-drilled.

Stay away from the Align brand .09mm hex driver. It sucks big time. I really suggest you get one
from Whia. Whia is much, much better quality and about the same price.

If you want a "lifetime tool" (one you buy once and use the rest of your life), then buy a PB Swiss
hex driver. Expensive, but worth every penny.

http://www.Wihatools.com

Item# Style Size Price
26307 Hex Precision 0.71mm $4.46
26309 Hex Precision 0.89mm $4.34
26313 Hex Precision 1.27mm $3.94
26315 Hex Precision 1.5mm $3.94
26320 Hex Precision 2.0mm $3.60
26325 Hex Precision 2.5mm $3.60
26330 Hex Precision 3.0mm $3.42
26340 Hex Precision 4.0mm $3.42
26390 7 Piece Precision Hex Driver Set
Includes: 0.7, 0.9, 1.3, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0mm $27.82

Towwer hobbies carries the complete set for $24. They sell singles, but dont stock the .71mm.

Most hobby stores carry Wiha and can easily order one for you.

Whia are made in Geymany and are great quality for the price. These tools will serve 99% of
heli builders perfectly. The other 1% are the idiots that trash their tools (like using a hex wrench
as a pin punch). They are good quality at a good price.

Now on the other hand, there is PB Swiss Tools. These are very high quality tools
that are not "cheap." They are excellent quality and will last a lifetime if
taken care of.

Click below for a list of their hex screwdrivers.

Never had any problems with the Align driver, just make sure it fits all the way in and is square.

There are obviously better ones, the MIP 0.9 is ealily available but if the rest of your screws are 1.3 stick with the Align.
