EZ fix for the Blade CX lower rotor head pivots

This is an easy fix for any of the many people here that have snapped the blade pivots off the lower rotor head.

Remove the lower rotor head piece from the heli and drill a 5/64 hole through the part were the blade holder stalks used to be.

Cut 2 pieces of 5/64 linkage wire approximately 3/8 long. I cut the pieces off a broken inner shaft instead of lingage wire.

Slide the lower rotor head back on and insert the wire into the holes. Use a small drop of thin CA at the base of the wire. Remove from outer shaft and let dry before re-installing.

It did this fix yesterday since it will be at least three more days until my replacement part came in. My BCX is back in the air and flying good!

Are you sure it is 5/16? (not 5/64 or something?)

Opps! Sorry about that! I meant 5/64. I'll edit the post.
