tail boom mod using 450 tailboom brace
chucked the carbon rod in a drill and used a file to turn the ends down to fit the frame and tail motor holder.

i made it long

i may shorten it if it flies weird

these blades suck but i have to fly them because my stock blades are all ragged out

Great idea Evan, I must have 10 of those rods laying around, you can make them as long or short as you want.

After I broke my original tail boom within the first few minutes of flying, my hobby shop recommended that I use a carbon rod as well. Ironically, I recently replaced my carbon rod for a stock rod from Blade, and it snapped after one tiny incident with the carpet...put the carbon rod back on and had the same incident, no snapped tail boom...go figure.To be old and wise one must first be young and stupid...

I've crashed the stock boom Aron without breaking it. Its carbonfiber boom. Also crashed my modified tail with no breaking. Tail holds way better now shockingly better

I just got the new long boom and motor assmembly from HH. I didn't even know that my stock boom was broken until I went to install the new one!
Haven't flown it yet but it has to be better as it's about an inch longer. It also came with one of the new tail blades but for now I'll stick with the KBDD one in orange.
Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!
