Well to make things worst I can see what tools he is using from the pictures. That combined with excess amounts of loctite is going to equal some stripped screws first time he needs to remove them.

Proper loctite application and a high quality set of tools goes a VERY long ways!

Yea, get them screws out, clean them up and reloctite them sparingly, or else.... get your dremel out cuz your gonna have to cut them bad boys out. Trust me on this.

Not familiar with the tools, but the loctite is a tad much... Nothing a little heat wont remove I suppose.

mckrackin, 3-4 threads is plenty, I have never had any problems using that amount, yet have had many using too much. But its your machine bud, build it how you see fit

I have used this thread locker in this amount since the beginning and have never had an issue getting a fastener out.

Don't plan to take it apart.
Hope it stays together forever

I find that hard to believe, but ok. It's your bird!

Well at least wipe off the excess that is outside the screw on the frame.

somebody taught me years ago to always assemble the whole chassis, including head, etc. with finger tight fasteners, with the base sitting on a piece of thick plate glass.
Then jossle the whole assembly till everything is square and true...THEN take out each bolt one by one and locktite each bolt accordingly. Makes for a very true machine w/ no twisting/alignmment problems.

Hi again Mc, mate with the plastic servo arms, ive had one of those strip really very easy in my hand, and ive heard tons of stories about the splines inside getting tore up in crashes, and folks dont notice it till the next flight. Ive never had any dramas with the metals tho.

Yup, and that's why it's recommend after every crash you go ahead and replace the plastic servo horns regardless. The splines could have weaken from the impact and you won't know until it's too late...
Ive never had any dramas with the metals tho.
Sure you won't strip alum servo horns, but instead in a crash you will just kill the servo gears. I'd much rather kill some $3 plastic servo horns then $30 gears per servo (potentially four servos, $120 later!).

Metal is not the saving grace for all things. In a bad crash, something has to break, and with metal you just move that break point around. I'd rather it fall on the cheaper parts of the helicopter.

I never thought or called you were a liar. I simply had a hard time believing it from my experience, but anything is possible.

You need to get out more buddy!
