Can't get some flush pliers on that to give it a turn?

I'd get a small bit and drill it out after heating it at 350 deg for 20 minutes.

Best way is to drill a small hole in it and use an extractor or easy out.
Maybe if you get a small hole in it you can get something wedged in it, heat it up and screw it out.

Just looked at it again, you may be able to heat it up and use a small punch to turn it. Just tap on the piece that is protruding in the direction to remove it.

Heat will liquify the Loctite.. Just warm the broken stud with a Soldering Iron or small gas lamp.

Ease the broken stud with an extractor or punch a hex driver into the hole you drill and screw it out.

You have been given some great methods for removing the reminder of the ball. Now, I must ask how did I brek? If it was in a crash, you will have to ask yourself, " Is the swash plate arm still straight?". You could have big problems if it is no perfect.

No EZ Out is needed. As soon as you hit what is left of the stud with a drill bit it will screw out going forward. I would lightly heat it up to loosen the loctite but that's about it.

1.0 to 1.5mm will do the trick. Before you try to drill it out, heat it up first and see if the stud will turn.

I've had this happen before, I heated it up and used an xacto blade to find a lip and spin it out.

If you skip me I can't play!

+1 on the easy out.

I bought two different very small sets from Sears. Ideal for the helicopters.

One side of each is a small drill bit and the other side is the easy out. Since the drill are designed to run backwards most of the time the heat will back out the broken screw before you even put in the easy out.

Well worth the investment. I can go look up the numbers of the sets if anyone is interested.

By the way, they work great on stripped out screw heads too!

Screws that small are hard to drill straight without messing up the threads, this is why I said to heat it up and try a pick or xacto first. He does have a nub to work with, I had a smaller piece sticking out than that and it worked for me.

You just need to get the loctite hot enough to release it and stay liquid while you back out the screw. You may need to heat it up a couple times. The one I broke off was in the same exact location as yours. I used a small butane torch. Once the head is broken off there's nothing to hold tension against the screw. Sometimes if it won't back out, it will go through as that hole is tapped all the way through.

The best way I have found to remove such a thing is ti heat the loctite, then use .5-1mm carbon disc to cut a slut in the broken bit and then remove with a thin flat head.

Prepare the ball with some 3-in-1 oil and some gauze pads. And your gonna need 'bout ten quarts of anti-freeze, preferably Prestone. No, no make that Quaker State.

I was thinking about cutting a slot,there is just half a mm sticking out that might get enough bite. Don't think I have a grinder blde that narrow? It is threaded all the way through , but there are a lot more threads that way.
HeliOcd...good luck not to funny..

@ n8rlovestofly
I would start with the slot idea. Use the thin small diameter dremel cutoff wheel. Modify a small straight blade screw driver to best fit the slot (remebr the slight radius of the wheel). Use a micro torch to heat the swash arm and loosen the loctite. The screw should back right out.

If not then drilling it is your next option. Left handed drill bits preferred.

Good luck.
