2" turnbuckles work quite well if you mount the swash followers directly to the head block.

I must be addicted to mods
For no apparent reason, I went and lowered the head block to the lowest hole. This required about 1mm to be removed from the main shaft? I used a grinder to resolve that issue, quickly.

Then, I mounted the washout arms directly to the head block. This required a longer bolt and a thick washer which I just happen to have laying around.

The Titanium turn buckles along with the digital pitch gauge allowed me to really dial this in.

Now, it just looks cool or should I say cooler. I can't wait to fly it.

Test flight results in
I finally got to the field to get a flight in with the new mod.

There was a noticeable increase in the flip and roll, rate.

I like it.

Can't say
I took some measurement awhile back and went to my LHS. He had a bunch of turnbuckles for RC cars. So I grabbed some. I had to drill out the ball links to get them to fit.

Wish I could be more help.

The washers Todd used are 1.7mm thick in case you don't have any of those exact washers in your parts bin.

Probably not a critical measurement though. He just threw them on at the field and gave it a shot and it worked pretty well.

Rail tail blade spacers also work perfectly to mount the arms to the headblock.

Does that put any stress on the plastic links to the swash? It looks like the arms are going to be spaced alot further apart than designed.

Great question!

Actually, if you compare the stock swash driver hub to the head block, you will see that it's thicker. Using the tail blade spacers adds exactly the right amount of thickness to put the arms back out where they should be. The plastic links align dead center on the main shaft and everything is stress-free.

Can anyone give me some part numbers and or measurements of some alternate links to complete this Mod? I'm finding it difficult to find 2.2mm control rods. I was thinking of drilling out the links to 2.5 but was afraid of removing too much material from the link. I think Vario uses 5.5mm balls but I'm not sure........

Any help would greatly appreciated!

I'm using the Synergy 107-043 rods, same ones used from bellcranks to swash. These are marginally long enough so make sure your links are threaded equally on both ends for adequate thread engagement.

I also lengthened the bellcrank to swash links from stock in order to get proper geometry on the swash driver arms at mid stick. This helps gain thread engagement on the pitch links.
