On my bigger helis I always replaced the stock ball links with Rocket City (Bergen) ball links as IMO they're the best in the industry. I'd love to replace the less than stellar X-400 (T-Rex links I haven't found to be any better) links with something better but not sure who sells links that will fit the smaller diameter control rods in our micro helis. Anybody out there done it?

If those Rocket links fit a Raptor you should be able to use them too as long as you use thicker rods

Check out the items I have for sale in the clasifieds including a CSM 420

That's just it... I want to maintain the small diameter rods for weight consideration which adding quality ball links. It might still be worth it to go for fat rods just to get those slippery Rocket City links on there.

Speaking of Rocket City, I think I read that they are now marketed under a different name. Anybody know for sure?
