Cutting outdoors on the 17th floor in Manhattan might be a problem. How about a window open and a mask on?

Happy flying

Hi

I used 3/32", it is a little smaller than the CF boom but all I did to make up the difference is take some clear fingernail polish & paint it on in the area that will go into the frame. Wait until it is just tacky & push it in. When it dries it will act like glue but will be easy to get out if needed. I believe the length I used was 106mm.

Happy Flying
Dan

I just did a tail down landing into the grass today so I am in need of another tail boom haha!
Does Home Depot or Lowes carry aluminum tubes like that or where would you recommend going?

Here is some, but you'll need to cut it to length.

Maybe a shop vac with a hepa filter and a mask, you don't want any fibers in the house. (if you can't cut outside)

I wouldnt really know. At first I thought the battery would charge because the charger was the AAs in the remote control. Then a month later I got a wall charger from China and now I realize the battery that came with it was DOA. So now I have to buy a new battery.

It does fly for maybe 5 seconds before the battery dies and I get the feeling the nine eagles is in between a mSR and CB100. It is very stable and quite precise but ultimately too light and lacks the wonderful inertia and natural flight of a walkera.

I started with Walkeras and then bought everything else so I could understand the difference between brands, and now that I have I probably will never buy any other brand in the micro market.

Maybe I will get to know Aligns when I one day step up to the bigger helis (I hear their 100 is a big failure so Im not going to waste money on it) but anything bigger than a 120 doesnt really interest me right now so I can only recommend Walkeras and the learning how to mod them which comes with the territory.

The horizontal fin was a little expensive at $10 but it was the only one I could find that fit the boom, got it same place

Happy flying

grampydan,

I just bought a new CB100 today. My wife and I just had a new baby and I was missing flying so I started looking for a micro I could bind to my 2801 pro and fly indoors. These links will be the first I use to hopup the little bird.

What did you use to hold the horizontal tail stabilizer to the tail boom?

A CF tail boom has been hard to find so far. Any links?

Thx

Hi
Sorry for the slow response, I haven't logged in lately. The horizontal fin from Clubheli comes with a bracket and screws to attach it. It also has two holes to attach the braces.

Happy flying
Dan
