Hello ,

I am trying to source a wing joining tube that is at least 50 mm diameter and 1150 in length ..

Slec and Fighteraces only list up 1m long ..

Regards

Ben

Look on ebay for the carbon tube and make your own outer tube from fibre glass, thats how i do mine

Ask the supplier of the tube to cut it to the length you want

I use Easy Composites for the tube and make the outer as above.

I have used Aluminium Warehouse quite a bit . Very cheap and custom cut to length required. When I last ordered I also ordered other bits like aluminium angles to use to make building jigs and long squared sections to usd as clamps / straight edges etc. Here is the link **LINK**

sorry didn’t see whether u specified carbon . Anyway it might be useful for some

+1 for Easy Composites for fast service

Only note, some of the tubes ID's have a seam and hence another carbon tube will not slide inside. Tried all sorts of ways to clean the inside out, but failed so far!

Anyone tried Bucks Composites?
