Default 110 size wing tube length & diameter recommendations?

Gents, what length and diameter carbon fiber wing tube will I need for a 110 sized pattern plane with plug in wings...
approximately 70 to 72 inches wingspan? I want to go as light as possible...
Suggestions for whom to procure this tube from?

Jerry Budd carries PBG and I've had good luck with them:

7/8" will work fine.

Wing tube for my Sebart Wind, 110 with 70" wing, is 3/4" x 26" long.

I have several that are 22mm (.866in) O.D. x about 23" I bought multiples to get a good price. If 23" is long enough, PM me and maybe we can work something out.

I use them here; http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_92..._1/key_/tm.htm
