One of the links on the DFC arms stripped... A quick search showed me this has been an issue for many. I wish I had thought to search beforehand, but alas.

Has anyone had any luck using different links for these arms? I have a bunch of other links but want to see if anyone has tried/has had any success using other links.

I converted my old 450 to DFC and remember those links being rather difficult to thread in. I used a #54 drill to open the links so they thread in correctly and easily.

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

I forgot who mentioned it, (maybe Ron Lund) but chucking the little threaded metal piece in a drill makes putting the ball link on easy. I run it in about half way with the drill then finish by hand.

I went through several links before I got it right.
This is my vid on how I did it. Ron Lund has a similar one.

Watch at YouTube

I have been flying my 450 for months now and haven't touched these links once.
