Default advice needed on giant scale and ball links

i'm building 1/4 scale Meister Zero and seek advice. the largest ball links i can find are 6-32 size and i'm not sure what size push rods are required for such a big plane.
any input as to control horns, servo arms and pushrod size/thickness is appreciated....thanks

Hi Badangle,
I have Carf Skygate Hawk (24.5kg) and Carf P-47 (25kg). Push rods are typically M3 ball links with M3 all thread rods. As an extra safety measure I encase the rods in carbon tube. Go to M4 if you want but our Large Model Association have inspected both my aircraft and certified them to fly at public events so I guess they feel all is good. Hope this helps
Bob
