If people are straining that part enough to break it, then I am sure it is also stressing the gear and the motor also, so may not be bad advice to replace the assembly! Probably why they designed the whole assembly to replace the small part !
(Sorry for my english)
Guys you're lucky to have some parts.
Since 1 month I'm writting everywhere to have some parts and impossible.

Yuneec USA, replied they cannot send it because I'm not in USA, even if they send it to someone in US who can ship it to me ... What a F....g mess !!!

I broke 2 arms and the same part as on the first post....
So I have fixed it by adding a small carbon part in the arm and screw it, but for the retract landing gear, I remove both and land from a bucket .... very professionnal !!
