Pretty sure they're Dubro. The 4-40's balls were too big but the 2-56 has smaller balls and bolts and uses the same exact size plastic piece but with a 2-56 thread. I drilled out some of the plastic and tapped 4-40 threads into it. I think it's going to be the deal.

no these 2 are not ,,,But the M-c 3 's are on the way so I must figure all mod's out before they arrive ,,,and that way maybe I can keep it in the air a little longer so I don't have to take out a 2nd on the home to keep in ds planes,lolol,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Nick

Nice trick with the steel rod and magnets. You're sick for the tail test though!

I dont know for sure but I'll bet that the MC3 Opus tail is more stout than other versions. Are you testing a MC3 tail?
