I bought the RJX 100% carbon fiber boom from HeliDirect that is made for the Trex 600. I cut it down to fit my 550, and it is FANTASTIC. Light yet strong. Just what I was looking for.

If RJX doesn't yet make an aftermarket genuine carbon fiber boom for the 700, they should or probably will soon enough.

I don't know why Align can't make a 100% carbon fiber boom for their larger helicopters. Maybe it is a cost thing, but I believe there is a market for such an "upgrade".

I am not sure if the 100% CF boom is any more light, but it is definitely more stiff than that CF wrapped thin aluminum. What this means is when you get those accidental autos where you bump the tail, you really don't have to worry about it hurting (or weakening) anything.Avant RC
