I am getting ready to do the DIY belt drive update on my Shogun and I want to get some carbon tubing. Can anyone tell me where you can get the right size carbon tubing for the tail boom, the boom supports and for a tail rotor control rod? Obviously the supports and the control rod do not need to be the same size as stock, but the tail boom must be close to stock to fit. If you have a link to a place to buy this stuff, that would be great.

Thanks.

The other sources mentioned above are good except watch out with HH they sell cut arrows for tail booms. I've found precision aerobatics has the C/F boom that is made with the correct ID/OD, really nice for beltdrive. PA's does not wear the belt against the CF at the tail either.

Try precision aerobatics

Yes, $3.90US std air mail. Took less than a week. The bearings are in the package but not installed in the boom (Nice). You can put them where you want too or not at all.

If you are fortunate, as I am, your local hobby shop will carry an extensive inventory of carbon rods etc. For just a few bucks I made carbon landing skids, carbon tail boom supports and a carbon tail rotor control rod and have plenty of material to make several more for myself or friends. The average cost of all diameter rods was about .80 a foot.
Retail, they want about $10.00 for the tail control rod itself. GOOD LUCK!!!
