I feel stupid for asking, but I cannot find an allen wrench, SAE or metric, to remove the screw that holds my blade holders to the shaft they pivot on. I bent the shaft and need to replace it or I will die (exageration.)

Oh, by the way. Great site. I have been lurking for a couple of years and just bought my first heli. I look forward to participating.

Thanks,
Dale

it's metric, 2mm i think, maybe 1.5

if the wrench doesnt have a crisp end to it, you'll have a hard time getting it to stay in the screws

Thanks,
I have tried 1.5 and it seems too small, and the 2 won't go in at all. I guess I need to try a better tool set.

I bought a good allen set at my local ace hardware. Hope this helps.

I'm in the same boat... so to speak.
First you will need to remove the Main Blades (042) from the main blade grips by removing the Socket Head Cap Screw (036). Then remove one of the two Socket Head Cap Screws (013) from the Spindle (016). This will require the use of two 1.5mm hex wrenches (one 1.5mm hex wrench is already included in the Mounting Accessories bag included with your Blade CP), one to hold the spindle and one socket head cap screw from rotating and the other to loosen the other socket head cap screw. After removing one of these socket head caps screws you will then be able to remove the main blade grips and spindle shaft from the center hub (after also disconnecting the Paddle Control Frame Pushrods [009] and Pitch Control Links [006]). Some force may be required, so be careful not to lose any of the Washers/Spacers (039, 040), Stepped Washer (015) or O-Rings (038).

1.5 MM. You'll need two of them to work on your blade. Most allen wrenches you need to grind a little shorter to get a nice tip. It's worth buying good ones. Happy flying, Tom
