Anyone having problems with the hex head screws in the frenzy? I have 3 different sets of hex wrenches and none of the 2.5mm hex will fit the bolts on the heli The only ones that they will fit is the 4 that holds the boom tight. I think I got the heli that was assembled on a Friday I checked the bolts and the hex itself in the bolt heads are not cut deep enough for the wrench to get a grip, it just rounds out the hex in the bolts.

I,ve got a set of Snap on hex drivers, anther set thats has titanium tips, and anther thats hardened tool steel. The problem is the hex in the bolts themselves. The only bolts that are correct are the 4 that holds the tail boom tight. As far as I can tell the hex that is cut out in the head of the bolt doesn't even go 2mm into the bolt. I've got some high strength Armour plated bolts on the way.

Just get some 12.9 grade bolts and you'll be all set. I've seen some messed up ones before. But thankfully not on my frenzy.

The ones I've seen just looked like they had a bunch of extra material in them. Maybe for the messed up ones, take a small punch and see if that's what it is. Then you can chip it out to be able to get your hex driver on it.
