Default Hitec hardware size?

Anyone know the size of the screw used to secure the horns to the servo; couldnt find any info on their website. This is the only philips screw on my entire car and I want to replace them with allens.

2.6 x 8mm socket screws work well. JR makes them. These are what I use. Be sure you are using them with metal or titanium gear horns only as the plastic gears use a non-metric scew.

Hope this helps.
