I buy allen hex wrenches from McMaster Carr. Low cost but very hard (durable).

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I have been going thru this lately as well. I don't even put my wrench on until I have heated it with a soldering iron on the feathering shaft bolt. They are a pain once you stick loctite on them. I had one good bolt left the other day and was able to heat it and hold the other with needle nose pliers and get it loose. It sucks to have to drill it out but a good last resort remedy.

Yeah I leanred to only use a small ammout, and put it on a tiny allen wrench and stick it up inside the featureing shaft, I mean a tiny ammount, it don't need much, maybe a dots worth the size of a > * and smooth it out around the threads. just cover maybe 1/8" length wise of the threads. Will do just fine. The soldering gun heat works great.

When getting the bolts out of the feathering shaft place one end in a drill and tighten the chuck and it won't scratch.

I'm not sure I understand what your getting at here. There is no room to put a drill on the feathering shaft bolt on my Blade SR.

I just had to remove 7 of the 8 tail boom mount screws on my t-rex 450 sport with diagonal cutting pliers(dikes). I bought this heli used but had the same problem with my t-rex 250. I will never build an align heli with the included screws. I will get a after market screw kit with deeper allen heads.

No one's mentioned screw extractor. Work well for this. Reverse threaded tightens itself nicely inside hex head screws without having to drill.

Hey you don't have a link to this screw extractor do you?

If its fixed don't break it.

Oh! We always called those ease outs. I don't know if that would do too good on a 2mm bolt. They work good on larger bolts for sure. I guess if you got one that fits kind of tight in the allen head it might if it don't break it off. Always worth a try.

If its fixed don't break it.

Here's a tip:

Every time you remove a grub screw replace it with a new one. They don't cost much ...
