I have a carbon fiber tail boom that is just the rite size for the V50, I have never had a heli with a tourque tube before. is there any reason I would not want to use the carbon tail boom, I am just geting into the build it is framed up and ready to put in the motor.

This heli really builds nice, even better than my Hirobo's so far.

The only reason is cost if you crash. You know your skill level, if you feel that your crashes are in the past go for it.

well I've had this boom sitting around for a couple of years so I might as well use it, and if/when I do dork it, I will have the stock one to replace it with.

Its only money

Anyway, If you had asked about a carbon torque tube then I would have some reserves because of the bearing. I'm debating myself if I should try it or not but a friend of mine had one and with time, carbon dust entered the bearing locking it tight and the bearing cut through the carbon TT in a snap

Now on the boom itself... hey just put it on

I don't remember where I got them, it has been a few years ago now. They were bought for an old ergo 30/46 that I used to have. I did have to cut it down in length to match the stock one, but it looks good on the heli.

I'm just about ready to start puttin in the servos I just finished up the tail, just have to put the boom supports on and then its time for the radio gear. this heli builds so nice, I can't wait to get it in the air.
