Default 700 size 5 blade swash follower

I have been looking at building a scale 700 size heli, and decided that the Century Heli head was the best option. They have a swash and head in stock, but no 12mm swash follower arm. The only one I can find is from Vario, and cost $88, which is almost half the cost of the head. Does anyone know of any other 12mm swash followers out there that might work?

Thanks guys! Ordered the less expensive vario one. Didn't realize that they carried 3 different versions!
