Removable Booms
Guys

I'm building a Vario Cobra and have a question on removable tail booms. Has anyone done this ? I'm thinking it would be easier for maintenance and for transporting this thing around. Any pros/cons ? Any preferred way of doing this ?

thanks!

Here are a couple pics of my UH1B for ya. I epoxy blocks of wood inside the tail stub and install 4-40 blind nuts, then use screws to hold the boom to the fuse. The tail drive is removeable at the mechanics end for repair/inspection.

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

although a great idea having parts removeable for transport
by keep taking it apart and refitting it you will get a lot of wear on the joint
my vario r22 has had the skid legs made removeable by a prevous owner so it would fit into a std uk car and now the joint is very worn to the point that if i keep taking the joint apart the heli will need new skid legs
my transport for the heli doesn't envolve removing the skids so fingers cross it will be ok whilst i own it
