Are there any substitute tail booms available for this ship?

Pv0523 is nowhere to be found. If it's the OEM then it's actually aluminum wrapped in carbon. I'll try the other one. Thanks for the quick response.

Or any R50 long boom. Just drill holes for tail case and tail boom bracket retaining screws.

The R50 boom didn't work out well for me. I purchased the carbon one and it was too short. The TT was hanging out of there. If there's a longer one I'd like the part number if you can provide it.

Thanks a trillion;

You're right the long boom titans are only 641mm. and the X50 are 663mm.

Or just get the PV0521-2 Aluminum Tail Boom X50 for ~$8 (if you can find any in stock, lol!).

Cheers,

I've reinvented booms for ships in the past. Worse case scenario would be to go digging and find length and ID/OD n get to hacking n grinding. Lololol but the link posted before looks righteous.
