Most of the ball link pliers I've seen and used are too big for small ball links on mini and micro helicopters. So, first I tried the modified plastic tweezers that worked for a while and broke!


I have to go with the metal pliers and found the perfect candidate for the job. It is called the wire looping pliers.

First I cut the slot on the curve side then filed off the curve into slimmer blade.

Then I bend the stepped side into 90 degree.

And it works great.

Very nice, but too much work for me. Give them to someone with a 3d printer and we can all have one.

If someone has a design they can send me I can print it up or machine it but I don't have time to develop the model right now.
