But sometime we can get some reliable help.

The screws are 0.1175 inch dia that is 3 mm.
The length is 0.762 inch that is 19.3 mm.
The threaded lenght is 0.200 inch that is 5 mm

The proof is in the pictures.

I tried to help.
It was not good enough but I tried.

Found these at Esprit: http://www.espritmodel.com/bb-foldin...nt-screws.aspx. Right thread, and according to my measurements will work as RP wing screws.

It appears to me they are too short.

Did you see before that I measured the screws as being 19.3 mm long? and that the Dubro replacement screw has already been pointed out ?

The old problem of which is the better plane is to be settled.

What the Assassin has in speed, maneuverability, and wind penetration... The radian makes up for in flexibility
Cool! I was scared just for a second for the RP!! That hand catch landing was nice!!

The screws on my BB Aluminum spinners are 19mm long, which means they will work on the RP's wing. I wouldn't have posted the link had that not been the case.

Thanks for that info sonny1.

I was judging by the look of the screws in the picture.
I did not find screw sizes else than the 2mm and 3 mm dia.

It still appears to me that if the screws in the pic are 3 mm dia they sure do not appear to be 19 mm long.

I thought that those screws in the pic were for holding the blades to the center piece that mounts on the motor shaft.

I imagine now that he will get the #2126 screws from Dubro.

Best regards and thanks from Zor.

Typical rookie first post:

Woops.. managed to park my Radian squarely into a telephone pole on the final approach and compound fractured the nose section with a full separation. The break is fairly clean but wondering what would be the best adhesive to use for this repair. Luckily the white cowling held most of the very front of the nose together including the motor cavity so there is basically the 2 main parts to rejoin.

Would gluing in a couple popsicle sticks fore and aft in the cockpit area add to the durability since it's a full break?

The rest of the plane amazingly survived intact except for the bent shaft on the motor since it was a direct hit and it took the brunt of the impact and got a replacement motor to install also.

My whole radian is held together with CA, just glue it back together.

It'll break somewhere else next time, just use more CA

overmyhead,

Nice to see you here _ _ _ WELCOME .

Sorry about that telephone poll being at the wrong place.

Fortunately foam is easy to repair.
Check the fit of the break first then glue it.

I have been thinking of reinforcing the fuselage front of my Radian pro. It has not broken but one landing at too much of an angle has compressed the front by about 1/16 inch.

I had to trim the canopy front to fit nice again.
I thought of gluing in 3 lengths of carbon strips which I happen to have. One on each side and one on the bottom center.

Lolipop sticks would also be suitable.

Good luck with the repair.

Ca would work, but I like white gorilla glue, I recently had 2 crashes after a year of putting her through the paces

I like the this foam breaks and fits back together nicely
Check back a few pages of pics on her and you'll see my pics

It's kinda crzy but after my 2 repairs the forward section is alot stiffer, I can tell by watching the videos I've posted there is less vibrations

I don't think you need to reinforce it with anything

Gg is alot cheaper then ca and goes 4x as far.

Ca is brittle if you fly in a colder climate and yellows over time
Go to Wally world/ home depot/ michaels crafts etc and pick a bottle of the white gg read the directions and glue her back together.

My 2 cents...
