I landed a little to hot last weekend and lost one prop and I have noticed my two rear dampers aren't attached to the gimbal. The small three wires are fine but how do I get the top ring through the little opening without tearing the rubber? Should I grease the opening or would that harm the rubber? What tools would be best? I'm thinking forceps would do the job.

Jeff Sibelius has other good instructional videos for the Q500 and Typhoon H on his YT channel, so does buelle109 (@Ty Pilot).

I use fishing line. You can find videos online showing this method.
