Wow! Sounds like a great idea, so what size copper wire do you use to make a shear pin out of?
I just knew these forums would put out some fantastic information/tips!

I have a roll of copper wire that I cut and use as a shear pin on my M120 with the fine tooth main gear and it makes all the dirfferance in the world for preventing damage. It won't protect it completely in a really nasty crash but you will still be able to fly it. Minor crashes that shear the pin don't do any damage at all. The shear pin also saves the main shaft from getting bent and blades from being scrapped.
