Help!
Really dumb question

Hi

Probably the most stupid question ever but i really need help.
How do you attach the ball links to the servo arms (in a copterx 450)?
I tryed drilling a hole and then use a nut to hold it in place but there is not enough to the nut hold tight.
I tryed screwing the ball link directly but it doesnt break throw the plastic of the servo arm...
How do i do it?????

You should be able to get a nut on the other side. If not, then maybe you mixed up the balls in your kit. Some of them have long bolts and some have short - the short ones go into metal parts with some Loctite.

thnks for your reply.
Actually i think this servo arms (from hxt900) are thick... I have other servo arms (from esky 8g) that are thinner and one those i can put a nut...
I guess i will purchase longer ball links.
Thanks

Ok, i got new ball links with longer screws and i can now use a nut to hold it.
One more thing, in the first picture i cant see any nut so i guess somehow i should be able to screw the ball link directly to the servo arm....
