Default Red Tail Boom

Hello,

Does anyone know where I can get a colored tail boom for my Trex 500 (Belt)? I really like the 600N tail boom.



Thanks!

There are no red tail booms for the Trex 500.

Making your own is an option.

Why you need red boom, for visibility?

Are you saying for example, to paint a 500 one?

Here is why I want the red boom...

I saw this 600N and loved the color scheme.

I am sorry you were out bid! But to offer you a peace offering I am willing to send 2 of the booms at N/C. If you PM me your address I will send 2 of them to you when they come in.

Jerry.

I thought Tarot made a red one for the 500 but I can only find a gold one now.

You could just cut a red 600 boom down? I would guess they are the same diameter... (but I didn't check)

Nope, the 500 boom is 15mm ID 16mm OD. The 550, 600, and 700 booms are 19mm ID 20mm OD. I thought about that at the beginning of this thread.

Hobby King will make custom colored and printed booms, what is stopping them from doing the Align logo.

I'm wanting the same thing. Has anyone found them? I am having no luck. I do see anodized yellow and blue though.

Or, has anyone found a place to get the tubing to make their own?

There are no options other than to do it yourself unfortunately. But I think it turned out pretty close to what the red landing tubes look like (was able to find those on eBay). I will say that sanding a tail boom down to the bare aluminum is not fun though, lol.
