Hey guys, what do you think of those sloppy ball links on the trex? Still building so I thought I'd get some input from those that are flying them.

The links that came in the kit were a different color and don't fit too bad. The real problem lies in the permanent squash plate links that go to the elevator pull pull and the scissor links.

Where to get the new DARK GREY ball links?
Where to get the new DARK GREY ball links?

I tried heating the original ones but there is still plenty of slop in control system. Any other ideas?

Thanx.

My A-arm (elev) actually came off when my tracking was off causing vibration. It was very loose. Everything else has good fit.

Take a thin rigid plastic sheet (approx .3mm thick) and CA it to the side opposite where it's mark "A". Hold the two pieces together on a vice (don't tighten too much) and wick CA between the two pieces (I use a small needle as an applicator to avoid splashing CA all over). Now tighten the vice just enough to compress the link slightly. Remove the link and redrill the hole just large enough to allow the ball to snap in the link. On mine I progressively drilled the hole until it was the same diameter as the smaller hole on the link (hole on the same side as the "A") and then used a dremel reamer to fine the sized of the hole to allow the link to snap on the ball. The whole process takes about 7 to 10 minutes per link. Trim the excess plastic with a sharp scissor.

New control links from Align
If anyone is suffering from sloppy balls on their Trex Align have recently added an upgrade to their site:

http://www.align.com.tw/shop/produc...products_id=707

Now I need to find somewhere that will delivery them to the UK.
