TT 90 Ball link Pliers?
The question is, does Thunder Tiger make ball link pliers specifically
the groove inside the pliers to fit perfectly my raptor 90 3d linkage rods?

If not does anyone know where i can get on that will fit my rods!!

I cannot build these rods without scratching them and i have tried everything except having the correct sized pliers that has the correct groove for my rods.

Hi T-heli
the plyers i have do not have any brand name on them , i bought them at the local hobby shop , the smaller of the two grooves will hold from 1.5mm rods and up , HTH

Another option is to use two ball link drivers and screw them both in at the same time.

Thanks for the picture, I want the groove size to be adequate so not to
damage the rods say when applying too much pressure on the pliers.
I do not know the thickness, for my heli is not with me now, i will measure tomorrow.

Two pliers would probably spread the tension better thus give abetter hold at lower pressure on the pliers so obviously a good idea, haven't thought about that, but cannot screw on both while holding both pliers.

i assume you mean either use 2 pliers or crew on both at the same time,

I did screw them on the same time which works for most linkages except the verey long one's the linkages need to be threaded almost to the last thread to be proper length.

Yes, screw them both on at the same time with something like these

Hi T-heli
i find that if i grab the non threaded section of rod , and hold tight , there is no mark left

if your grip is not tight enough the rod will slip and that is what leaves a mar or smear

i have used this pair of plyers for all the linkage rods from 300 micros right up to and including my gassers

the slot in the plyer face measures very close to 1mm but i think if you tried to hold a 1mm rod it would just slip , so any rod >1 mm should be fine , HTH

Thank you both, i guess if i find say a ball link plier that is 'grooved' for 450 heli's it will have to do, there should still be more area that connects to the link than just a plain flat surface plier.

Those linkage grip turners looks good thanks for the advise, i'll go and shop around, hopefully find something that'l work.
