I got mine from my local hobby shop. Just one word of caution with kevlar. Make sure it does not rub anywhere. It will fray and break. I could have lost a 25% Extra due to this. Luckily, I had a reason to pull off the covering and saw it was already fraying.

I'd suggest getting the steel cable set up. It's just as easy to install and safer IMO.

Get Kev-Cord from ACP composites. It has a vinyl coating to protect it from fraying. Also get their 4-40 bolts with the hole through the middle, very easy setup.

See http://www.acp-composites.com/acp-cord.htm

The Sullivan Kevlar pull-pull kit uses coated kevlar but you should still be careful to not let it rub anywhere.
