I've been having a devil of a time futsing the ball links off of my Blade and Hummingbird, and last night unfortunatly brke one on the hummer.

I've seen ball link pliers for the larger gas heli's, but was curious if there is a product out there for the micro's as well as wondering what the rest of you ae doing to pop your links off ?

thanks !

As I don't own one of these but perhaps can help you with a potential solution provided you have the tools to work with (ie dremel, file)

I modified an old needle nose to fit my needs...perhaps smaller tweezers for yours.

Hello Stratmanx,
You could buy a ball link pliers and they would work on your micro ,but I use a fork ,that's right a fork from a silverware set we don't use anymore. It works perfect for me so I'm going to stick with it.

i have the exact instructions i typed up laying around here somewhere. when i dig them up, i'll post. but, a nice looking DIY remover can be made with a pair of tweezers, a 4-40 cap screw and some drill and dremel work.

if it ain't broke, break it.
