Nice arms.
I have been checking them very often. Both my 71 and 74 have links setup this way. The 71 has had 30+ flights setup like that. The ball link is rounded just enough to center the bolt in the servo arm hole. They still are nice and tight. The problem i was finding was that i couldnt find any tubing that didnt require me drilling out the servo arm to a larger diameter than the 2mm nut so it wouldnt hold anything but the spacer. I already had 3mm servo arms but could not find 3mm ball links locally. I probably should order some but its hard to when they are working how they are now.
