Any of you using a CF tailboom on your Pantera? What kind is it and how did it fit, any mods. or just a direct change over?

Curious only because I have time while it's still winter and could shave some weight off and I want to fine tune an allready great flying heli.

I know that Dude II uses them. I simply have not found an affordable source and hence, have refrained from buying overpriced booms. Please remember, we're the little guy amongst heli companies and as such cannot gurantee 500 or 1000 carbon booms will find a home in the prudent time frame require for volume purchases. Anyway, I belivee he uses booms marketed for the JR Vibe/Vigor because they're the same diameter and simply cuts them down. Frankly, it's pretty easy to do because once you get the length right, next you slot the ends (a Dremel with a cut off disk is the tool of choice) and bingo, instant Pantera carbon fiber boom! Anyway, if anybody knows of a "source" of carbon booms in the raw I'd be interested in hearing about it.
