Default ball links setup

Hey

I want to use ball links on my Funtana but dont know what to get and how to set it up.

Here is what I think I need:
* [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXD914&P=0]Dubro Adjustable Ball Links 4-40 w/Hardware[/link]
* [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXD905&P=0]Dubro Swivel Ball Link 4-40[/link]
* [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXEMF9&P=0]Dubro Heavy Duty Control Horn .40-.91[/link]
1. Are those the only things I need for the setup except for the push rods?
2. Should I use the adjustable ball links or the regular heavey duty ball links on the servos?
3. I added a picture the I drew in paint of what I think the setup should look like, can someone please tell me if its right?

Thanks

Well, Im changing my mind about the horns because they are way too expensive.. Im switching to the [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXD935&P=0]Dubro Control Horns Nylon T-Style[/link]. So do you think I should use the swivel ball links with the nylon horns or a regular clevis?

Thanks

Good quality clevises are fine. I like the Sullivan Gold or the Du-Bro Safety Lock Kwik Link. I used the control horns that came with the ARF as well. I read where a few people had problems with the stock control horns being brittle but I purposely tried breaking one of them from my package and it wouldn't. Maybe I got different ones, I don't know.

Ed, is that the swivel ball link on the control horn or the regular heavey duty one?

Thanks

Also, does it matter if I use the regular or swivel ball links on all connections? How should I set it up? Which kind is better?
