Default looking for a metal double servo arm for futaba bls172

Looking for something heavy duty, i am looking for something with a holes between 1/2 to 1in holes for a jet project. I dont need lots of throw but I can't seem to find a good servo arm with a smaller length.

Great Planes, SWB, Hangar 9. I have drilled holes in between, when necessary.

Several different sizes on this page:

I've used the metal Futaba arms and they are very stiff.

I can also recommend the MLP arms sold by Airwild Hobbies:

They mount "upside down" to get the arm in line with the servo output. Work with 4-40 hardware

Yes, as mentioned Futaba makes some fairly HD metal servo arms that I have used on several occasions. Such as ....

Of course there is always the clamp on SWB arms that can be cut down or redrilled for smaller applications.

the SWB are to long, which is why I am looking for some 1 in max that has holes less than 1 inch. My f-16 elevator throws were so small I had to cut endpoints waaaay down, which kills resolution. I will check the other links thanks
