Pushrods & ball links
Hi all,

I was thinking about getting my Cuatro going again and got a bit of a shock to see that it was 2007 when it had it's sudden meeting with terra firma.

I'm a bit nervous about which pushrods and ball links to go with due to the large size and weight and also that I'm going to go with flybarless.

I'm hunting down some MA M3 rods and their ball links as we speak but just wanted to see if anyone has found a nice heavy duty option that I haven't seen yet.

Mick.

These metal ends are not good under load they separate,
You will need to fit with 3mm bolt and large washer

Mick,

Try 04598 and 04599 from Mikado

http://shop.mikadousa.com/search.asp?keyword=04598

I get them from a local supplier in the UK, but I guess they are available worldwide.. These do not fall apart! I use them on my Large Helis..

They do separate
until something fails, it must be OK
Look care fully and you will see it is possible for the black tensile bolt to go through the brass securing ring
Hence the reason for the large washer
These links are designed for the car boys
They are a pressed fit
Not sure where you guys are using them on your helis there are few places where you can use a 3mm bolt, and ball link

I'm using the sea craft, M3, 15mm of thread on each end, turnbuckle and super stout. They come in a ton of different sizes.
