So i have everything i need to convert my mini titan to flybarless except for the control rods to go from the swash to the grips. I've looked everywhere i can think of to find 1.3mm control rods (standard for the mini titan) long enough to reach and have come up with nothing. None of the stock replacements are long enough, it seems i need about 50mm in length, and i can't find general 1.3mm rods anywhere. Any suggestions?

Or put align balls on it and use align ends and rods. Or other manufucturer.

When the Kasama head for the MT came out, you used the MT balls and links and rods. Some guys didn't like the fact that they were thinner and smaller, and used the comparative align product.

I am using Outrage 500 control rods along with Outrage 500 ball links on my Trex 450's and they work fine. Beefier than stock too. I think they are what your are looking for on your Mini Titan. Call HeliDirect. They cost about $1.50 for a pack of control rods and $1.50 for a pack of ball links.

Thanks chuck, thats the kind of idea i was lookin for. I called every bike store in town and they all say 1.8 is the smallest spoke made so no luck there.
