Wiring is not hard at all. There is plenty of space, but like Mike wrote, you'll need two 6" or longer extensions depending on your wiring layout. The link below shows the start of my wiring.

Have fun with it. Wiring is not bad at all!

You're welcome! I have to admit when I saw your link rods I was a bit stunned, but then I saw they were just hanging. Wiring looks good!

I got sick of my thumbs hurting and found a better way

Also, I apologize for the shakiness. I had my gorillapod mounted on the tailboom

Yup, the bellcranks should be parallel to the balls on the servo wheel. Swap them.

If any of you find the Rush ball link too tight, you can replace them with the ball link from Goblin but I am not sure how long they will last but so far they are still tight and smooth after 10 flight on both my Rush and G700.

Replacing or resizing the ball links from the pitch levers/swash driver to the grip pitch arms is not recommended. You can replace any other link with your favorite link.

Why use other links? The Rush links are indestructible!

Honestly i never resized any link. For me they are now perfect. Apart from the head ones, they are calling for aprox. 50 to 60 flights more. They are still looking new after more than 45 flights.

On the head they are now getting loose due to the hard work they do there. I did not resize them from begining too so I also support the Idea of not resizeing them. I simply neglect the idea of resizing in general! Those links are simply very tight for tight flights!

Same here. I had one link on the tail servo that was so tight I could barely twist it side to side with my fingers. I tried a few spares with the same result. 9 flights in it is almost perfect. Slop free and a little tight but not binding.

I believe its a good idea to pop off the links and make sure the pitch slider is super smooth as explained ealier by friends in the threads. This would avoid to misunderstand the difference between binding of the parts of the tail slider and tightness due to a tight link. I did play around with those links on the bench without resizing with any tool to get them a bit soft until i felt that they are movable without too much force. Atleast a reasonable tension for my tail servo to work out in the first few flights. Some low torque servos would get really hot with very tight links especially on the tail. If i would concider resizing there, then i would do it just a little.

Any advice on an easy way to oil Scorpion bearings? That lower one is extremely hard to get to on the Rush.

I had bought a good size bottle of tri-flow from readyheli and the bottle came with like a 6" long plastic tip. I can get anywheres I want with that sucker. Maybe look into it.

I bought the oiler from Scorpion. Seems to work great. I've had it for four years and still haven't used up all the oil. Either that means I don't fly much or lubing as they say works! I think it's the latter.

I flip the helicopter upside down and the tip for the oiler slides right in the slot on the mount.

I also wondered about oiling that lower bearing. I will try turning it upside down next time.
