Default Best way to straighten tail rotor

So in a minor crash I've slightly bent the tail rotor, I can tell not so much from looking, but as it doesn't fly smooth on the tail, I switched to the spare tail rotor and it's back how it was new.

So for the old slightly bent one (looks pretty good to the eye) what's the best way to try and get it straight, or do you just get spares?

If you have a good eye you just twist em straight..You can tell if they are good by sighting down the blades to see if they are tracking true,when they are spinning you should only see one blade, not double vision,if that makes sense..

I have switched to the SoloPro 2 tail rotor, because the bow-tie design does not flex or deform like the stock ones. It is a mod that I had found for my mSR a while ago and just seemed logical to upgrade my mCP X as well. Good luck ;}
