    I used these captive nuts I managed to get on eBay.
    See here for an example listing.
    I printed spacers to ensure they fitted flush, and glued them in place.

    It might be good to change F7 to accommodate these easier-to-find nuts.

    I used the same style of nuts for the fuselage_gear parts, although that was more a “drill and glue” exercise.

    I have used flange nuts in the M3 & M4 locations. Initial fix with the super glue and final fix with Gorilla glue. It might be better to have an alternative print that accommodates hex nuts?
