PITA

Yes the screws are too big for the Futaba eyelets. The Futaba screws are actually too small for the holes.
I found one of two options. Force the Hirobo screws through the eyelets (so yes I used the eyelets on everything BUT the collective) or I got these really cool hex head servo mounting screws off E-bay a few years ago that work well.
Sorry don't remember the company that puts them out though.
The stock ones will work it is just a tight fit in the brass bushings.

Futaba changed the eyelet size. The old ones (brass colored) were a perfect fit, the new eyelets are chrome colored and too small... I just spent some time digging up old eyelets for my new servos.... grrrrrrr

I ran into that same problem as well. I did have JR eyelets laying around that fit perfectly.

if you hold the eyes with a pair of pliers, you can work the screws in.the eyes are tight on the screws but that does not matter

Check out http://www.microfasteners.com

I THINK that is the right URL. Great place for all your small hardware needs. They sell a purpose-specific servo screw that has a 5/64 hex head, and is the greatest thing since sliced bread. No more worrying with those damned tiny Phillips heads screws; and these fit into the new, smaller i.d. silver Futaba servo grommet bushings.

Yup, that was right.

The catalog number for the specialized servo screws is STW0209. Five bucks plus shipping gets you 100 of these puppies.

You will especially like these if you do planks too. Those who have struggled with a pair of hemostats (or worse, pliers of some sort), trying to get servo screws into a cramped mounting area, know what I'm referring to.
