busted canopy holder

Hey Guys

just realised I've managed to bust one of the rods which holds the canopy on my yellow heli - the back one just below the swash assembly.

Trying to superglue it at the moment, but in case that doesn't work I was wondering if anyone has another fix for it.

One thought I had was to drill a couple of 0.3mm holes and insert a pin, but that would probably involve buying a mini drill, as I'm not sure if I could use such a small bit in my battery drill.

The heli still flies ok at the moment, and I had thought about cutting off the corresponding rod on the other side so the back of the canopy just hangs in the air. Not sure though if I might then damage a servo linkage if the heli takes a hard hit on the side.

As always, any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers
Tigg
