    Need help removing a stripped screw the one pictured at the end. smallest one. I crashed into the ocean and need to open and dry it out. [​IMG] If the picture does not show it is the one where the motor is that holds the two halves together.

    Your picture didn't come through but if you're referring to one of the allen head screws, try putting in the phillips on the end back in and take tension off the arm. Caution - Don't over torque the phillips.

    Funny thing... just finished carefully drilling the stripped head off of one of those today.

    Thanks, I did try putting the hex screw back in place to remove tension. Looks like I might have to drill out.
