GOOD...Threaded rod
BETTER...Reversed threaded od
BEST...Turnbuckle

You asked for good and I linked you to better.

The ability to "fine tune" a lenght versus settling for a full turn has got to have its merits even if you still have to remove it to do such, just as you would have to with the "good" rod.

If you want to minimize removing rods for readjustment, consider the link below.

In a pinch I've used 2-56 all-thread. Just cut it to length. I wouldn't use it for a 800 class DFC head but it works for throttle linkages and shorter linkages on smaller helicopters.

It's a "hobby" item. You may be able to buy it locally and not have to wait for the UPS truck.
