No, i need a pitch slider mechanism to operate a main rotor head that has a 10mm main shaft,just like a tail rotor control but 10mm bore, only want to achieve pitch,use is a quad copter i wish to build with variable pitch rotors belt driven off a Honda mini 4 stroke engine

Your best bet is to have one machined, not too complicated but many Machine shops will likely quote you no less than $150 each, more if you just want one.

Otherwise I dont recall any RC helicopter with a pitch slider like that of a tail control with that size bore (maybe industrial RC Heli? = expensive?)

Maybe consider getting a Trex 600 swash... take it apart, clean it really good with acetone, sand the ball and inner ball race to get a good surface for adhesive and then epoxy the swash ball perpendicular to the shaft axis onto the swash body... maybe that will work for you. Otherwise you'll need to have it made.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...
