So, I was impatient and put machined screws in plastic. Me and my dad's Turnigy's screwdrivers are coming but I went along and used "crappy" Phillips screw drivers and messed up the head(What all kids mostly do)... Do you guys know how to remove screws with a server 4-5MM away from it? I was installing a servo... The frame is sunken in where the servo sits. Helpful comments are appreciated.

Thanks

Off Topic: But Turnigy screwdrivers are high quality stuff.

Drill the head off and use pliers to get the rest out.

JB Weld an old Allen key to the head of the screw. Once it is fully cured (FULLY CURED) you should be able to back out the screw.

FWIW the Turnigy drivers I had were crap. The steel was not hardened and not only did the round off quickly, they actually bent/twisted along the shafts.

Can an alternative to JB weld be like super glue?

I don't think super glue has the same holding power as JB.
If you have a dremel,you can slot the head and use a flathead screwdriver to remove it.
the JB weld and old allen is a great idea too,don't be in a hurry and let it cure all the way.

it's better to ask for forgiveness than for permission

JB Weld and an old Allen key - JB weld and CA are different products. If you don't have JBW, go get some. There's an old adage....the right tools for the job. Listen to wisdom young grasshopper.

Can I try the dremel advice first though? I know I will need JB Weld in the future but I have a dremel...

A small easyout is your best bet.

Cut a slot with a dremel and then use a standard screwdriver

all heli screws are to soft thats the problem you can drill the heads off. on the bigger ships use a #52 drill and bump your 1.5 mm hex driver into the hole it works like an easy out . you end up with no frame damage no thread damage and no need to disassembly .you could try smaller holes and smaller hex wrenches for smaller bolts .good luck
