Hi

Does anyone know where I can get an M2 X M2 left hand X 60mm long turnbuckle?

I have searched Rocket City, Horizon, Dubro, H9, Nelson etc and am unable to locate any.

I can work around the length if it is close enough.

Thanks

I have a couple Of Zeal turnbuckles. I have 2mm and 2.3mm. I also have just the rod or with the titanium ball ends. How many do you need?

Or, you can just buy your own. The part number for the 2mm X 60mm is

Z8002-06

McMaster-Carr is also a useful source.

Miniature Aircraft X-Cell sell turnbuckles as well. I forgot what the part numbers were, but they have almost every length you might need for a helicopter.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

The Zeal ones are perfect.
The problem is they are out of stock everywhere, I cannot locate them anywhere.

makes me ask...

why not just use the rods that come with the kit?

I know your answer is going to be... finer adjustment...

But I still ask why...
I have set up Trex(450, 600, 600N), Raptor(30,50,90), Vibes, Vigors, Vario(JetCopter), Blade CP's, Concepts, GMP(old helis)... never had an issue with using standard linkages.

Is there a Heli you are working on that you cant get the linkage right on or is it a strength thing...

midwest.

Exactly right, finer adjustment.

I am dialing in a flybar less TREX 500 (Mikado Conversion) and I have now only 2 links in the head - Swash to Grips.

The best I can get is a blade thickness out of track, one turn on the rod end is too much so my master blade is either a blade thickness too high or a blade thickness too low.

With a turnbuckel you can ajust in micro ajustments in 1/8 ,1/4 ,1/2, turn(one end is right hand thread the other end is left hand thread) With a regular link you can only ajust one full turn at a time.
I found that the stock links on my Compass FLB head are not stiff enough they would flex when under load. I found Traxxas tie rod links worked for my head.
