The metal screw ballends how do they work on the cnc alloy upgrade. In all the pictures the alloy upgrades already have ball on which seem to take the worse plastic snap on type. Can you please answer this as I like the screw type and wil not upgrade if my current type are not accepted.

Can you unscrew the supplied cnc alloy ones and screw mine in?

The Alloy parts use a mix of ballends, some are longer, some are shorter, but they are one piece and don't have a screw through the middle. Quite a bit different than the standard T-Rex ballends.

Jim, we don't!

My Mom fell and broke both her wrists Monday, so my week has been a bit hectic. Finally, last night we got together to record only to find that Skype was having outages and we couldn't stay connected. *sigh*

Sorry guys, you'll have to wait a week to get your Inside Heli fix.

Thanks, she is doing better. She's home from the hospital (one wrist required pins and rods). She is taking it well, basically laughing at her plight. What else can you do, really?

They should be dead. Yet they are still fighting a lost fight.
Kind of like the RIAA.

Both wrists? Considering my amount of time at either a keyboard or a transmitter, I think I've just realized what my worst hell could be!

I hope your Mom recovers quickly, Chris! Gads....

Yep, both wrists. AND, it never rains, it pours. I'm sitting at my Mom-in-Law's computer right now, we just returned from the emergency room with her after she tripped and fell, cracking a rib!!! Jeez, what is it with Moms and gravity?
