Hi All, I managed to pull the threads on one of my wing bolts fastening the wing on my Wot 4 the other day. crying 2 Does anyone know the size of the wing bolts on a Chris Foss Wot 4 ARTF? they don't appear to be metric, and Ripmax don't seem to know either.

Many Thanks....Regards....John

Hi John

If I were you i'd remove the captive nuts and fit metric nuts and plastic bolts. I think 6mm should do it and you can get them off e-bay.

Its a "funny" thread (I have had the same conversation with both my LMS and Ripmax!!)

I took out the captive nuts that were in the model and replaced them with ones that would take M6 plastic wing joiner bolts (so that I didn't have to keep searching for my screwdriver down at the field)

Thanks for the replies Guys. You have confirmed what I had in the back of my mind really that I would end up replacing the stock fasteners with some 6mm captive nuts and plastic bolts.
