Plastic blade hinges

Hi Lee, I've been reading this thread (up to page 41) and I decided to buy this helicopter for my son, mostly for your comments. I have a problem with tracking and my blade hinges are made of plastic, the hole thing, not just the middle part. And the lower hinge has a plastic cylinder thart holds the blade in place even without the screw. The problem is that this cylinder is not allowing me to reduce the conning angle below 6 mm. I was wondering if there is a method for bending/twisting/adjusting this kind of hinges (hope is not in page 42). Also the lower big gear is not perfectly horizontal. I assume the only way to correct this is heating and bending it. I find it hard to see where to apply heat only to that gear.
English is not my native language so I hope I made myself clear. Thanls for all the things I've learned reading this thread!!

Found a page where you can see the blade hinges and the balance bar that also seems different:

Also found this set, perhaps I can buy it and replace the whole ting. I wonder if it fits in my 5888.
