What are your thoughts on the new spindle bolt for the Trex 700 from Lynx heli?
I haven't gotten my set yet, but if you have yours please post feedback.

hmm, they look nice and worth $13 for the extra insurance of a stronger bolt.

Yes they have been on the lynx website for weeks but they cannot be purchased there. They do not seem to be making it to any of their listed dealers.

I talked with Zach at Lynx today and the spindle bolts are not released yet. He said another week or two.

I will be picking up a set, cheap insurance and piece of mind.

I still haven't seen them for sale on any dealer site yet. I might call Zach tomorrow and get an update.

I'm one of the lucky guys that had the bolts fail in flight and have been searching for a better quality spindle bolt. The search is finally over.

Just talked to Zach yesterday and he told me they will be shipping out 4/30 and the dealers should have them the first week of May.

Just by what they have on their site this is going to be a top quality bolt and you would never have to worry about one breaking in flight. Once I get my set Ill be posting my feed back.

Many Thanks to Lynx Heli Innovations for listening to the community and taking action on this very concerning issue that myself and others have ran into.

Good news
That is great that there is going to be a replacement. I built the 700 LE & pro and I was able to find some M6-1.00x20mm 12.9 grade cap hex bolts with a 12.5mm flange washer built on to the head plus I added a 13mm washer. So far no problems on either heli, now Iam no hard 3D flyer either but for around $ 4.50 for 10 bolts about $4.50 for 10 washers it was a cheap fix but the bolts have no shoulder, the threads go all the way up to the head. We will see over time.

I checked the lynx site as well as all the US distributors and no one is even showing the part, let alone having any in stock
