View Full Version : Drilling the throttle servo mounting blocks?
06-07-2009, 04:29 PM
:confused:When trying to mount my throttle servo it say's to use the four plastic blocks and whilst I know you don't want it to be loose the holes in the blocks are so tight I can't get the screws in them.
Has anyone else had this problem, should I just use brute force and ignorance to get them in or would it be okay to drill them slightly larger?http://www.helifreak.com/images/icons/icon7.gif

Not there yet with my build - but probably best to open them up a little bit.
Save you breaking a screw off in the plastic.

Now that you mention it, I seem to remember drilling them out.

I drilled mine out, it will be blood, sweat and tears if you don't, well it was with me :)
Just do them so the bolt fits snugly in there, they don't need to thread/bind to the block...

http://www.helifreak.com/images/icons/icon7.gifThanks Carpman and others as I said I'll run a drill through them so they're a nice snug fit but don't need to be forced, cheers.http://www.helifreak.com/images/icons/icon7.gif
