Ideally the rod would be extremely light and thin walled with the largest possible diameter but the typical thick wall stuff is fine also. Check the heli section of your hobby shop for tail rotor pushrods if needed. Also your servo may not end up parallel to the rod so you might need a ball link at that end.
That is a great idea about the heli dept,I drove to three hobby stores before I found one that had a snug fit on the 2-56 all thread....well,back to the hobby store. ; ) and yes,it will need a ball link on the back to keep things smooth.....thanks for the help. Doug
