Well, HeliOption is not available any more, and 500X links are wrong size for 500L.

I am now looking into the generic route, e.g. Du-Bro or equivalent.

I found them!

Align Counter Thread Linkage Rod set for 550X / 700E, H70Z007AXW.
They hust happen to be exactly the right length for 500L. They are a little bit more heavy duty than the originals, but not too much IMHO. And they look cool

The size is listed as M2.5x31mm
Does anyone know the size for the Align linkages in post #8 above?
