    Anyone know of a source for 10mm OD woven CF tubing suitable for arms? All I can find are either pultruded or cost prohibitive. I’ve tried the wooden dowel in the pultruded arms technique and had some success but I am still breaking arms more than I did with woven (actually, only broke one of David’s arms). Thanks.

    I ran into the exact same problem, I just worked out a way to use 10mm CF tube instead, and it feels quite solid. I’ll upload the 3d printed thing I made to do that and post it’s own thread about it at some point this week.

    Here you go, made a thing, post contains pictures of both how the tilt mech mounts and the overall finished boom:

    I made a tail boom, but should be able to modify it to work on the folding booms too.

    Long term, I might make a modified version of the V4 that’s just designed to use tubular booms from the ground up
