I need to replace my tail boom. It was CF 97 cm long I had too much flex for my liking...

I found an Aluminium boom for 1/3 the price..

any risks in switching booms ??

thanks ?

Jeffrey

the Spectra-G uses an aluminum boom as std equipment.

Its heavier, make sure the CG doesn't move somewhere you don't want it.

If you have a large amount of tail rotor vibration, it will eventually stress crack and fail.

If your machine runs smoothly it will last until you crash it.
