Default Scale Rod End are here





All these scale rod end are male. Final version will be made out of stainless steel. Its going to be around $3-4 a piece.

More updates in 1-2 weeks...

Disruptor will be using only these rod ends, by the way we ship. We will slowly update all of our kit with these rod ends.

all stainless, as tiny as they are, they are not easy to be made, our prototype is made out of alum, as you can see from the pix

I imagine they are a handful to make they look great though.. good choice on the materials as well that should last awhile..

They are beautiful but it looks like they are limited in movement. Is it possible to make the body of the rod end skinnier so the ball will have more movement? I know it's more for scale than performance but just trying to get the most performance while maintaining the looks and strength.
