Thanks Don. I'm already using a bolt and nut in the remaining lug underneath, though I still have to replace that one with an M3 one - I only had M2 with the required length on hand. I will go through my parts bin to see whether I can find a longer ball. I had thought of that, too but was a little reluctant removing some of the wood. I guess I can always add some ply in the right place to strengthen it again.

On a positive note, my 53mm Lunsford turnbuckles arrived today, and everything works out perfectly. I get my desired 9 degrees of collective and 8 degrees of cyclic without binding, plus a blue light on the BeastX at 6 degrees, using 17mm servo arms direct-to-swash. Time to mount the mechanics on a test rig, balance the blades, and go for a test flight!
