Two 1/16" long pieces of very small diameter clear tubing with a 1/2 long white thread between them. Slip over pitch links, keep tubing at top of links, with thread over top of head. Flew over Pavement for 1/2 hour with about 14 crashes--throttle hold before impact when possible. Saw no effect on balance of head in flight, makes links a little easier to handle with big gorilla fingers also.

Broke one link---LOST ZERO links.

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

all you really need is a little hot glue at the end of the anti rotation guide. This keeps them in place when they pop off.

Guys!!! We need pics!

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

Bob White has a hint - dab of hot glue gun glue across the forks to keep the link when it pop's loose
