im feel so stupid...i dropped my radio and the rudder stick doesnt seem to be working (maybe jammed, and you can hear like a plastic piece inside when shaken). it's no longer spring loaded, like if you pull the stick to the right and let go, it doesnt go back, just sits where you leave it. i have a cheapo helicopter (walkera dragonfly 22E) and the radio came w/ it. i know i havent been very specific, but can i fix it, or do i have to buy a whole new one?

get the screw driver out and take a look.

providing the part just came out it should be fairly easy to replace it back on providing that you remember where each part goes as you unscrew.

Put some miniature mole grips on the head and pull hard while unscrewing - be firm and be gentle.

try undoing them upside down, whilst pulling on the case. If screw is threaded it might take a bit to get out. From past experiences, unscrewing it "downwards" towards teh floor, and trying to pull case apart might work a bit better.

OR - drill a small hole from the other side so you can apply pressure. Failing that, bash 'em out.

If things don't change... they'll stay as they are!

good news and bad news. the radio works, which means i fixed it...the bad news...the little part that branches from the main shaft and holds the blade nips is super loose on the main shaft and it slides up and down the shaft super easily. and...i dont know how to fix it, does anyone have any ideas on that? i hope im being specific enough.

i haven't flown a dragonfly, but if you post a picture someone might recognise what you are trying to say and help you.
