either get your lhs to back order the parts
or look at world of heli in germany (the web site is in english and german)

and you will need to wait for the parts to come through

my 47 crashed damaging the boom but i have managed to straighten it out (all bar a couple of kinks, that could be cut, reshaped and re- silver soldered if i so wished)

if its the pitch control arm that broke my advice is don't carry the heli by the rotor head with the blades in a blade caddy

I ordered spares from Ishiimokei. Co. Ltd. [mc@ishiimokei.com]

Not only were they well priced and fast delivery - but they know what they are ordering and advised me of an incorrect a part number rather than send me the wrong stuff

Hi guys,thanks for the reply's, will checkout web site's suggested for parts, just a little info on how crash happened, whilst flying for approx 12-15mins, at a height of 15ft, the heli took a rapid decent to the ground, i then tried to correct this by adding pitch to no joy. on inspection of Heli found that the servo arm had come off the pitch servo giving it a negative pitch, so by giving it more pitch all's that happend was an increase of speed into the ground, so major lesson learned always carryout check for any loose screws (ouch), once again guys will keep you posted on progress of rebuild, (may take some time)

Seen numerous instances of servo arms / screws coming loose, post crash analysis.

The solution I found that works is by adding a tiny drop of CA glue to the bottom of the servo screw head. The CA will secure the screw to the top of the plastic/metal servo arm. Just make sure the CA does not go to the threads.

I've always used large washers top and bottom when attaching ball links to servos and screwlock on the nut.There's an awful lot of force transmitted there through a small area especially with large helis.Consequently never had a failure in that area in over 30 years.

jondv, I believe you mean CA under the screw head. Just carifying the post since normal readers don't read the entire thread and then jump to conclusion on a partial information.
