Few Ideas
First can you disassemble the cage and pull it off from one side with the flybar attached ? A tiny screw extractor wont do it.

The method I use is going to reqire you to get it mounted firm in a tiney vice or clamp so you can get some pressure to it.

nope
i tried that cutting tool heating it up and using a flat tip screw driver and i think that just made it even worse. i guess I am going to have to cut the flybar cage right there remove it and get a new one tomorrow. i wish when people ship these they dont even TRY to assemble them at all. when i got this it was loctite on all of the proper screws BUT one of the black plastic side rings was on upside down and that screw was stripped. maby he/she figured that they did it wrong. oh well I guess thats what I get for buying on ebaY

Just may be / is their any thing left
I hate it when people recommend tossing in the last resort option 1st. The dremil thing is always last resort and 9 out of ten times really tears stuff up leaving no option's left.

Is it a 1.5 mm or 2.mm hex set screw and is their any thing left of the bore after you knockered it with the dremel ? Any hole left at all ??

Can you get the arm section off so you can get it firm mounted ??

And do you have any digital caliper's ??

Yea don't give up. Is it one of the 4 screws that hold the flybar cage together. If so the cage will come apart from both ends.
I guess we all need a little more info. Sorry cutting the slot didn't work, it worked for me twice and didn't leave a mark on the cage.
Greyeagle if you got a better Idea what is it.

As A last ditch effort, if you can get an Allen stock to fit reasonable well, you can JB weld the Allen stock to the screw, let it set overnight, and remove the screw that way. Just be careful to only get the JB Weld on the screw and and Allen stock.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

Use a small easy out. Can purchase them from the local hardware store, it has reverse threads, drill a small tap hole in the nut rite where the allen wrench would go and insert and twist out. Works great!! Last resort cut the cage off and replace with a new one.

one more try before I cut it off
I am going to try an easy out today. going to home depot and lowes to see if I can find one small enough for the job. YES it is one of the four screws that are holding the flybar cage togather

i got that stripped screw out..
I went to the local ACE hardware and got the smallest easy out I could find. WOW those are expensive $15.49 each.
I came home and drilled with one side of the easy out and instructions say to do with the drill on reverse and there the screw came out with just the drill side of it. So now I have corrected the whole entire full metal head assembly as supposed to be and just need to find a new screw to put on it. I checked by using one of the other screws on the flybar cage to see if it was still threaded properly and undamaged and yes it is still good. I will hit the local hobby shop up soon and hopefully find that tiny screw and instal my new full metal head.
Thanks for all of the great ideas on how to get that stripped screw out everyone on RR

But probably cheaper then a new fly-bar cage and you can use to again on a problem screw.
Glad it worked out for ya.

I sure can
I can use it over and over again. A new flybar cage would have cost me like $26. Just having problems finding a hobby store that would have that tiny size screw for this thunder tiger product. but will not stop looking, well be for a little while so I can fly some today when it warms up to 50 outside. lol I gotta get my fly time somehow.
