Default Lynx, Rakon, or Xtreme Pitch Slider/Tail

Ok guys, it's been a few months and I am now in need of a replacement pitch control slider.

What are the best/lightest pitch sliders out right now that will work with everything else stock?

I may upgrade the whole tail-case at some point but right now only planning to get a pitch control slider.

Was originally going to go Lynx but RKH and XTM look nice as well. Just want to go as light as possible.

Thanks.

It's not just going as light as possible. I'd rather go Lynx!

I got an xtreme slider. I've been happy with it, it's cheaper maybe not the lightest but the double bearing ones should all be pretty close.

I've used both Lynx and Xtreme. Both took up almost all of the slop. You can't go wrong with either.

Thanks guys. I ordered the Lynx double bearing pitch slider.

Just read a new post now that mentioned an RKH single bearing slider and wonder if I should have gone that route. I like to keep it simple and light weight.

Oh well. The lynx shouldn't be that much heavier.

Hey Dave,

I just installed the RKH slider with one bearing.. so far so good. I'll let you know how it holds up. I bought the heli used and it came with two MH sliders that had tons of play in both of them, so I decided to go another route.
