    RE: where can I get small hardware

    bets bet would be check the local hardware store they should have a aisle (atleast mine does) dedicated to all size screws bolts nuts etc.
    if you dont know you better ask somebody ! usarmy active 1989-1997, 1990 desert sheild /desert storm, 1993 somolia .

    RE: where can I get small hardware

    there is an online place called something fasteners.  rcfasteners...hobbyfasteners????  I dont recall but have seen mention of them here as well as maybe an advertisment on this site.

    All they sale is screws, bolts, washers, etc...  I dont know if they have a minimum order or not.  Probably be worth it to buy a selection to have on hand if you go that route.

    Like Morgan said...hardware store might be a possibility.  Not for me though as Ive checked the small mom n pops stores here as well as the big box stores and about the smallest they go is 4mm.

    Get one of their assorted "boxes" and you will be set for a number of field fixes when you loose a bolt in the tall grass.

    Yes this is exactly what I was looking for thank you
    as far as local hard ware stores go I can't even find a screw to use for blade balncing (the largest screw on the heli)
    same for local hobby shops all I have found is parts for rc cars that come with screws
