Default Lynx Quad tailcase pitch lever

What pitch lever works with the Lynx Quad bearing tail case other than the stock plastic one?

I used a stock pitch lever on my Lynx quad bearing case. I also shimmed the lever with a little washer I had laying around (I think it was a washer from a 130X tail shaft), which seems to give the lever a much "cleaner" movement with less slop. I've used this mod on both the stock tail case and the Lynx quad bearing case and it cleaned up the pitch lever movement for both cases without causing the lever to "stick." If you choose to try this mod, simply put the washer between the top arm of the pitch lever and the tail case (it can take a few minutes to get right since it's a small washer and a tight fit). I've never used an aftermarket pitch lever on the 130X, primarily because that's something I'd consider to be dead weight and a waste of money.

I found that the oem plastic lever and the Quad are a great combination.
Especially if the slider is Lynx too, the ball on the top of the slider snaps into the plastic so well, I was amazed.

I've had a few metal levers and a few different sliders.
I've settled on plastic lever and lynx slider because for me it was a very tight tail setup.

I have not tried the XT Lever, I really wanted too, I waited and waited, the Quad case got to me before the XT Lever was available and dang if I realized I didn't need a new lever, the OEM plastic one just freaking worked.

Yep, I'm using the Lynx pitch slider as well. My tail setup is:

* Lynx TBSR boom
* Lynx quad bearing case
* Stock pitch lever (w/ shim mod described above)
* Lynx pitch slider (single bearing)
* Lynx tail grips
* Lynx tail shaft

It's really an ideal combination of parts and a virtually hassle-free solution to completely fix the 130X's tail problems once and for all. I haven't tried the 300X boom support mod yet but so far I haven't needed to. I'm very pleased with the Lynx parts; the quality control of Lynx stuff is phenomenal.

Thanks guys for the replies. Uriah that is exactly the same tail setup i am putting together. Using the lynx 300x tail boom supports cut down as well. Should make this tail nice and solid. Doing a lynx build up on an extreme frame. Looks great so far should fly nice.
