So he breaks a lot of balls?
One or two of my own and fixed lots of others. I do alot of helicoiling too and I tap a lot of holes as well as thread milling a lot of holes for manufactured parts.

I don't have one...Why would I?
Because you would probably hurt yourself with something sharp like that

I can do all that too, however, we cannot assume that everyone has the tools or the money to run out and buy them. I offered a solution that will work with little to no expendature. If he doesn't have a Xacto then use a steak knife it'll do the trick as well. Without possibly ruining the threads.

PJRono's suggestion is the best place to start. Try the most simple and least invasive way first. It looks like there's a little piece sticking out one side. Heat it up and try to push that around with a tiny screwdriver or small pick.
Sometimes it just doesn't want to go. I've drilled a few out, and the left hand drill is best since the drill and possibly the mangled end of the screw can tear up an aluminum thread easy.

M2 on a 600....for real. I would not even trust M2.5

I think if you get a small punch and a very large hammer and just beat the sh;t out of it that might work

Interesting thread. Question, if using a soldering iron to heat a bolt to remove with blue locktite, how how do you know it's hot enough to start loosening the bolt? Next, what is the bolt is threading into a metal servo mount and the frame is carbon fiber, will the heat hurt carbon fiber?

Reason I ask, I have one of those stupid flat head Allen bolts in a trex 450 bolting the servo tray got the cf frame I need to get out.

Mustang,,,,, Slot it with a dremel and it will come out with a screw driver. Just keep the iron on and try it every minute or so.

Thanks, I got it slotted, but driver slips out. I'll use the iron and check it as suggested.

You need to get it hot enough so that the loctite bubbles or starts to smoke a little, otherwise it won't release.

Im not sure of my plan of action I thought, heat it try a pick or flat blade. Next left and right handed bit with heat. Waiting to go to sears for bits.I love all the help and I'm glad we can all get along I feal there's no right or wrong way. But I'm a little reluctant now.

When you heat it the aluminum will expand more than the steel screw whish makes it really easy to use a pick or knife to work out the screw. Once you get it out far enough you can use a pliers to finish the job.

side note

Is that the old version of swash plate (original from the kit)? If so I would recomend to get the one for the 7hv the size of the screw is bigger, also if is the result of a crash check the inside ball for free movement all around sometimes they get damage and after you do all that work, it wont work right...

I bought a parts heli that I'm building and the swash had the broken ball link. The swash looks like new and is very smooth. Look like a high quality part I like compass. I'm slowly converting to FBL. I've flown trex and knight love the knight smoother and faster. I love Run Ryder because everyone is so willing to help!
