Stripped pedal threads on chainset

Whilst trying a power climb on a short steep hill I experienced a sudden lurch to the right when my pedal moved sharply outward. My FSA crank had unexpectedly released the pedal under load. I can't seem to find a spare RH crank anywhere on the net. Any ideas?
I'd like some more gears please

    What a pain.

    You'll generally only find cranks sold as pairs although you may be lucky on eBay. Or you could find an engineering shop that will fit a helicoil.

    Highpath Engineering will fit you a helicoil insert for about £15
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    most proper bike shops will have pedal thread savers.

    Thanks guys, I'll try my LBS for the helicoil / threadsaver.

    SJS cycles has crank spares but I suspect buying a whole chainset would be a cheaper/better option
