    Hi.

    In the PCC Combaticons 5-Pack, one of the leg drones (the car/Swindle one) has a tendency to be highly unstable. It tends to not stand well and pop out of the socket.

    The reason seems to be because there's a spring mechanism behind the front of the car, where the PCC connection point is. The purpose if the spring seems to be to return the leg back to car mode when you remove the PCC connector.

    I would like to fix this by trying to dislodge, maybe even severing the spring. Can anyone tell me if this is advisable? Would it fix the problem of this leg being unstable and prone to disconnecting, and would there be any side effects such as an unstable car more?

    Any advice would be peachy keen.

    Thanks.

    I didn't sever the spring on mine, what I did was a little more simple
    I just applied super glue (or nail polish if you prefer) around the inside of the square while manually holding the drone in leg mode.

    After It dried, I got a MUCH more secure connection. Now it works like a charm. :)
