I made my own. I found a regular ball-link and driller the hole in the ball to 3mm. Then I enlarged the hole in the swashplate so that the ball could rotate in there with the shaft going through it. then I glued a little plastic washer to the underside of the ball inside the swashplate to hold it in. I used medium CA and a piece of thin piano wire to apply just a tiny amount of CA on the washer to avoid getting it on the ball. Works great!

I think that I would rather just buy one or the swash with the ball already installed. Just need to know where to get one besides helihobby.com from what people say they are crooks.

The Hummingbird swash fits the 'Hawk quite nicely and you can get those from just about any hobby store

Buster7467,
If Hummingbird swashplate fits aerohawk then you can buy Cupid Swashplate (Ball mod Installed) for $10.99 from: http://www.greathobbies.com/frame_index.html
Just a search for Cupid Swashplate on this site.
Hope this help.

If the Hummingbird swash is a direct fit for the Aerohawk, Dennis over at www.deeteeenterprises.com carries swashes with balls pre-installed. I have ordered from Dennis and his service is absolutely AMAZING.
