Been wanting to ask...my brushless mounting bolts are size 2.5/2.6mm and the prop adapter thread for prop is between 6/32 and 8/32...ACE hardware guy said there is a 7/32 size but he doesn't have it....I scrounged some 2.6mm bolts from a hobby shop guy who had some in his private stash (r/c cars), but he couldn't tell me where I could get some if I needed some....also...should I be gluing all the nuts and bolts before my first flight..if some of these bolts get lose, i'm up the creek..is there a supplier out there? TX in advance guys

To JerryB, the small metric bolts and odd-sized SAE's can be hard to find. RTL Fasteners www.rtlfasteners.com (http://www.rtlfasteners.com) has all the small bolts, screws, nuts, washers, nylon bolts, servo-mounting screws, in a variety of head styles (socket, phillip, pan, button) as well as Bondhus balldrivers, wrenches, etc. They also sell assortment packages. Good prices, too!

Yep, what Ron said about RTL Fasteners.

I use Blue Loctite on all of my bolts and cap screws.
