Default main rotor screw

I noticed that my main rotor is a little sloppy and that the screw is stripped. Has anyone replaced it with a longer screw and nut or is there a better way to go?

Either a nut and bolt or just change the shaft. If that hole is stripped, it might be cracked to that point anyway. Look close.

Be careful trying to use a longer screw and nut. Remember the stock shaft is hollow. tightening too much could crack the shaft. If you do just snug it and a tiny drop of locktite on protruding theads to keep screw from backing out.
