Hi! I recently bought a Phantom V2 and I noticed that in one of the sabers the retention screw is askew, like its positioned sideways. Is there a way to put it back into place?

Any help is appreciated Smiley

Pretty sure you need to re-tap the hole with the correct size of the screw. Then again, the more you tap the same hole the more the hole losses its threading. So, if it is bad you may have to drill a new hole.

I don't really know what you mean by "sideways".  You can always just take the screw out and put it back in.

I'm trying to figure out how the heck it gets sideways in the first place....

Well, thats what happens when you cross-thread a bolt. I mean, I have done some quick manufacturing/assembly stuff and it does happen, when you angle the bolt in wrong, it will go in at an angle. Something like a retention screw may be harder to do, but maybe possible? The problem you would have if it crossthreads is it just wouldn't hold in right. Just re-tap the whole and it would be ok.
