I am probably behind the curve on this one, but I've just spent 45 mins trying fit a teeny little nut onto the bolt that goes through the very bottom of the main drive shaft. It is the only nut (of that type) that is not captured. I tried needle nose pliers, my index finger, my pinky finger, super glued the nut to my index finger, super glued the nut to my pinky finger, a small flat head screw driver, and gravity. NOTHING WORKED!

Then, a light bulb went on (Eureka!!!)and I tried an a small allen wrench. The long end of the allen wrench fit snuggly into the end of the nut and it helped me easily attach it to the bolt. 45 mins of fumbling stupidity, then 5 seconds of pure genius! LOL. Anyway, I hope this post helps someone else with big hands and a small heli....

Rudderman,

Does the crazy glue sort of make it like a captured nut on the plastic tail gear? Sorta confused by your description.
