I now use the knitting needles as they are half the price of factory tail booms.
Today I just ordered the new parts, and a fancy canopy after the crash posted above. Will post the pics of the upgraded/repaired heli when I have time to do the repairs. And Allan, I normally use amazing goop and yellow drywall tape to strengthen the inside of the weak blade stock canopies (a method I use for RC car bodies as well).
