Picture of How to Make Working Replacement Connecting Rods for Some Micro R/C Helicopters.

In this instructble, I will show you how to make replacements for the rods connecting the rotor and stabilizer.

Step 1: Materials:

Picture of Materials:

- Micro R/C helicopter
- Stranded wire
- Wire stripper
- Pliers
- Scissors

Step 2: Step 1

Picture of Step 1

Strip the wire and separate the strands.

Step 3: Step 2

Picture of Step 2

Gently bend the wire in half and start twisting it onto the upper rotor or stabilizer. Twist it tightly with the pliers. Don't do too many twists, or the wire won't fit on the bottom joint.

Twist until the last twits hits the top of the bottom joint when the stabilizer and rotor are level.

Step 4: Step 3

Picture of Step 3

Put the wire around the bottom joint and twits around it. Cut off the excess wire.

Do this to the other side, or the wire will bend, affecting performance, and eventually break.

Have fun!

Exactly what I was looking for. One of the connectors went missing and I was looking out for a spare which proves to be costly. Let me try this !! Thanks for sharing...

Thanks for sharing.
I might never need to do this but it is better to know how to fix it instead of buying new parts or a new rc helicopter.
:D
