Missing one, and it kinda bugs me.  Anyone know what it is and where I can get one?

Looks like a 2-56 Allen head. About 1/2" long?

5/8" from base of screw to end.  I'll check Ace.  Maybe I'll get lucky.

Thanks

It measures 2.15 mm in diameter and 19.63mm long (20mm)  the thread pitch is metric 0.45 matches as I look under the microscope. My Metric thread Pitch gauge only goes down to 0.45 and it could be 0.40 which is very close in size. So your best bet is to look on eBay, or buy 6 screws that are similar.
I’m thinking it’s M2 0.40 x 20mm.  Good luck

I might have one. I will have to bring one of my remotes over and pull one out to check it.

Definitely worth a shot. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen something VERY similar at my local Ace.

Those small bolts will be available at your local hobby shop (if you have one).  Very common in model aviation and cars.
