700 E Ball Link Rods

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Ok so I am building a new 700 E from Heli Farm in AB.Best price around even with taxes etc inc. So I am waiting for a swash leveler to fit this bird(if it was flying season I would have borrowed one or something)I noticed the Ball Link Rods have a built in nut to stop rod from turning when you tweak the links. Now they did this but missed out on a very big feature(in my opinion atleast). The rods could have been fitted out with a left hand thread on one end and a right hand on the other. When putting the ball links on could have counted the turns on each end to get them set the same length. So now when in need of tweakiing it would have meant just turning the built in nut one way or other to shorten or lengthen the entire arm. It would also mean very precise tweaking
To a tree, balsa wood and MonoKote taste just like chicken!

Thought for the day

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.

If you can't eat it or hump it.

Pee on it and walk away.
