    Hello,

    Just looking to see if anyone can help me out. I'm looking for the right size tool to take apart an Inspire 1.

    The ones I have been using aren't exactly the right size to fit all the screws and causes issues when trying to take an Inspire 1 apart.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You just need a standard RC Helli toolkit.....something like this. (Although you will have no use for the pitch gauge :))
    Helicopter Tool Set Reely from Conrad Electronic UK

    Then get a set of Torx drivers for the star bolts.

    I think you need metric sized hex wrenches. I guess the standard tools in the US are imperial sizes.
    I know, I had to fine tune a Fender guitar and it turned out I didn't have any wrench that fitted because they were all all metric (Netherlands use metric system). I believe China normally uses metric sizes. Most Chinese stuff I have around....(that could only be my DJI stuff I guess) I can take apart with my metric tools.

    I posted this here a while ago:
    Fastener sizes I've found on the Inspire 1 so far.

    I am excluding pliers, tweezers, x-acto, philips and blade screwdrivers , because I assume everybody all ready has those.

    For fittings on both the transmitter and the A/C:
    Wiha 26441 Precision Hex Ball 1.3mm 40mm 120mm
    Wiha 26443 Precision Hex Ball 1.5mm 50mm 145mm
    Wiha 26445 Precision Hex Ball 2.0mm 50mm 145mm
    Wiha 26447 Precision Hex Ball 2.5mm 60mm 170mm
    Wiha 26457 Precision Hex Ball 5/64 50mm 150mm
    Wiha 26708 TORX T8 2.5mm 1.6" 4.7"

    Anyone else find more sizes?
