Are you asking about the tail rotor output shaft, or the tailboom?

Or is it a torque tube? What are we talking about here?

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

He might be talking about the T/R pushrod? We will have to wait and see what he is talking about?

Take Care,

That would be a torque tube. And I would go with carbon, but that depends on the model and the situation. With some the stainless tube might just be the way to go. What type of heli will it be going in? Oh and don't type in all CAPS. It is like screaming at everyone, and is difficult on the eyes to read.

Sounds like a Rap60/90. I would go with Al's arrow shaft conversion!

I second the Al's arrow shaft mod

Unlike the stock torque tube.Al's are straight as an arrow.Imagine that.You can tell a big difference with the true shaft and an extra bearing

Good Luck Corey I PAY-PAL

Probably use CA, maybe epoxy, but ask in the Vario forum, to be sure.

Where Vario is concerned I wouldn't worry about the carbon tube. I have a friend that flies Vario, and he has no problems with the tubes at all. As for how he secures them I am not to sure. But I to would ask this question in the Vario section. You will most likely find better advice there.
