I stand corrected. As far as handles I don't even keep spare steering handles in stock. I think you are the only person who ever lost one. Something might have been wrong with the stainless post it rides on.
If you google this, you will find MANY instances where the handle has fallen off, and sometimes it is lost. Whether you lose it when that happens is just a roll of the dice. Andy isn't alone. Far from it.
"I lost my control rudder handle while on the road to a lake vacation trip. My daughter said she heard something hit the car."
"Same thing happened to me. 2012 Revo 11, third time on the water. Trouble is that in my case the handle just simply came off unexpectedly and I fumble-fingered it and it went over the side into Davy Jones' Locker "'
"I have the same problem with my new revo 11."
"Yes this happened to me two days ago (Adventure 2010). on a 3-day trip on a lake.
And more! When I tried to screw the set screw back in, and was tighting it, the whole brass bushing came out of the plastic rudder handle."
