Try 4mm Piano wire. Its tough to tap so you'll need a HSS tap for it, but doesn't bend so easily (and springs back) should you knock it in transit.https://www.facebook.com/scale.skids.52

So, it is not easy to make flybar from raw materials.

I think is much easier to look for some similar flybar on the market.

Hi Thanks for the offer but shipping puts your offer out of reach I'm afraid.

Yes I've searched around but 500mm is too short for what I need. Trex 700 fly bars are 4mm x 570mm. I think I'll try a wanted add on the BMFA classifieds for some genuine parts.

Nothing to be afraid!

Remember that the snappier response it depend on your radio programming.

So, take the chance and you can manage the "fast response" doing some adjustment on expos and dual rates.
