I'm looking for threaded rod to make short pushrods for the T-Rex CCPM head (semi custom setup). It appears the pushrods in the kit are 1.25mm. Can anyone point me at a source for 1.25mm threaded rod?

Thanks.

Looks like that's 8mm diameter with a 1.25mm thread pitch. I fear a couple feet of that would outweigh my poor little heli : )

A lot of people don't like dealing with Irwin at HHI ...... I buy pushrods from him because they are stainless steel and are available in all lengths. You can also get the pushrods in 2mm if you prefer .... there is little difference in the weight, so I use 2.3mm (I use this size on all of my nitro helis). You can also look at Heliproz for the pushrods(http://www4.mailordercentral.com/heliproz) ..... they also have a good selection. Heliproz also carries the Rocket City ball links. I like these links because they are bidirectional (they go on either way). This makes trimming your machine out easier.

Is this what you use on you T-Rex, seem a bit on the large size??
With the Rocket City ball links, what size would you use for the Rex?? There a little on the prisey side so I don't want to get the wrong ones. Thanks

I would love to find threaded rod in the same diameter and thread pitch as the stock rods. I'll take 6' if anyone knows where to get it?

Here's what I've found so far. It looks to me like 0-80 threaded rod would do the trick. I don't understand what the "0" means. I'm pretty sure the 80 is 80 threads/inch (same as 2-56, 4-40, 6-32, etc.)

In any event here are the sources I've found so far:

"0F2400RODS" from Olander is 0-80 x 24" stainless
http://www.olander.com/ (no price yet)

http://www.smallparts.com/products/...ptions/trlx.cfm
$15 for 24"

I've seen this stuff for MUCH more. Not sure why it's so pricey. I'll post more when I know more.
