I use one on my Raptor 30 from Central Hobbies. Titanium rod ends in 2-56. I add ball links from Dubro in 2-56 because the metric rod ends don't fit the 2-56 thread. I've been very happy with it. The drawback is that if you have a boom strike, the carbon fiber rod usually shatters, too, but they're easy enough to replace.

I have a CF pushrod on mine and it doesn't glitch. I could only see it causing a glitch by either rubbing somewhere or vibrating.

I used a standard c/f rod with suitable ends from Ricks, I think 5mm in diameter. Had to drill out the supplied supports a tad, and just use one of them rather than all 3.
