Default Canopy magnets with alignment pins

Does anyone know where to get the replacement canopy magnets with the alignment pins? I've looked around the sites and I get can't locate them. Just dead links to Readyheli. They are the ones with the plywood surrounding the magnets and pins.

This back area is connected via two pins and magnets. from the manual

Thanks

Can anyone offer up a review on these? One or 2 per canopy? Cheap enough, but are they strong enough? They would be for my 550SX canopy.

when Mikado was out of stock I used one from the hardware store. E7000 glue and your done just not the alignment pins.

Also the 380 proto canopy magnets fit the 550/600 frame if you just enlarge the hole in the frame slightly and can find a rod 2.5 or 3mm I can't remember exactly. Works REALLY well especially with the magnets your talking about.

I would guess that they would be stronger than the Mikado magnets. I copied there design and made my own for my second 550SX and like it better than the glue on Mikado ones which also do work fine. My home built's are much stronger and do not require an alignment pin.
