I think I read somewhere that the 550 links were the right size,80mm from center to center,or 10mm shorter than the ones in the 600 manual.
hopefully some one will chime in and confirm.

not to be too smart azz.
But the correct length is what is needed to make 0 degrees on main blades when your linkages are all square and swash level. The elevator A-Frame on the NSP sort of sets the height of the swash, so the rest is a matter of getting blades to 0.

Jim,
you are correct,that's the definition.But I think he was looking for the correct size links to use because the align links are thicker and the balls are larger.The OP wasn't very specific.
It would make sense to use the 550 3g links if that gets him in the length ballpark.I had some time and came across this thread trying to help out.
