Question 1.2 mm Allen Wrench / Hex Key

So my Trex 450 PRO V2 3GX Combo Kit came with what has been identified as a simple 1.2 mm Allen wrench / Hex Key.

Does anyone know where you can buy one of these.

I can't seem to find one on line.

Having built one of these myself quite recently, If I am not mistaken this is actually a 1.3 mm key size, which might explain why you can't find one. You can buy these from many outlets in various qualities.

Most people, including me for what it is worth, would say buy a good quality driver which will fit the screws well and cause less damage.

Wiha or Mip thorp are two that come to mind.

P.S. I think you will need two for the feathering shaft.

P.P.S. See link here for one on ebay U.S.

MIP Thorp makes the very very best. I have a 1.2 for my 450 and it works soooo much better than the crappy Allen wrenches they throw in the box. Bought mine online, just google it and you'll find 'em?

Are you sure its 1.2? I could have sworn it was 1.3

Just looked at section 3 of the manual and it says hex drivers needed 2.5, 2.0, 1.5 and 1.3 mm.
