Wondering if anybody uses any ball links they think are better than the stock TT links? I have used these on other helis (not TT) and appeared to be pretty heavy duty, but they are about the same as the TT links. Never had a proble with TT links, just curious. Any opinions?

I had a crash, and 4 or 5 of the stock TT ball-links cracked open at the ends.

I replaced all the balls and ball-links on my Raptor 90 with the Align Trex 700 balls & links.

The balls are 5mm instead of 4.75mm and the plastic material on the ball-links seem to be tougher.

There are a couple of different "kits" you can buy - one for the servos (2mm threaded ends) and the flight control (3mm threaded ends).
The flight control kit comes with various lengths & standoffs.

They aren't too expensive ($4 a kit with 10 or 12 balls per kit).

I wouldn't bother with the 5mm conversion if I had a Raptor 50.
