Order Allen head or torx, that way its a lot harder to strip the head as opposed to phillips. As I'm impatient, I look at the vendor and order from US vendors. If you have time, you can get them in larger quantities with better prices on the slow boat from China

Over time I ordered some several other sizes as well for other helis.

I just did both of my G380 the same way, using stainless steel bolts a couple days ago.

I think the ones I used to secure the boom were m2x12.


Btw you can get them on Amazon as well though their selection appears more limited
