I used some 4mm hollow carbon rod. I had to open the ends up a little so some 2/56 threaded rod would go in it.

In the end the carbon split a little so I ended up using some cyano to hold the threaded rod in, and then used a little heatshrink tube on the end as well to stop it splitting some more.

Seems to be holding up ok.

Oh if you can get some carbon rod and use it, then perhaps put the pushrod and server on the other side of the frame, so when you have a boom strike you are not making up another pushrod as well.

I havent done it yet as I have been lazy, and just wanted to get the heli in the air
