Default Snapped Pushrod

I have a mini piper and managed to snap the steel push rod at the servo end making it way to short... any suggestions on making a new ruder pushrod? Can i go to the hardware and buy a thin bit of steel? hope so.. i know.. maybe i should go to the hardware and see...

anyone else dumb enough to snap steel pushrods? let me know how u made a new one without sourcing out the exact part.

thanks.

Depending on the diameter you can replace it with music wire about .039 or 1.5 mm.
