Default Joining Carbon Fiber Tubing

What is the best way to join the ends of CF tubing? I would like to join two pieces at an angle to support the the wings on my parkflyer.

In the past, I have used a bent piece of aluminum tubing that slip fit the outside diameter of fiberglass rods. The entire assembly was then epoxied together.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Dave

Thats basically the same way I've been doing it except I use brass. If I'm making a straight join, I glue C/F or glass tube inside the tubes to be joined.
