Default Diamond Dust short kit

I acquired a short kit from a laser cut manufacture. I need to order a carbon rod. Do you all know where I could purchase them at?

I'm looking for anyone who has experience on building this? I have 2 are needed to be framed up. Shoot me price/shipping too.

Here's a thread that may help:

See post #11 for actual first gen tube sizes, but read the whole thread, it'll clear up some build questions.

Use the Dave Brown pushrods, they are black fiberglass like the original DD.

Yup, those are perfect for the leading edge and spar extenders. I happen to have a package of those here and they measured .300 O.D. X .250 I.D. X 32 1/2'" long, two to a package. I think one package per plane will do. Tower Hobbies has a good price for them.

You still need to find the larger inner/spar tubes .355 O.D. X .300 ID. (2ea. aprox 18.125" long for standard or 2ea. aprox 14.625" long for clipped wing). I think I found them at a kite parts store online. No info, that went away on a long dead pc. Sorry

Try CST (www.cstsales.com). They have a large selection of carbon tubes, I bought 2 that fit together for a wing joiner assembly in a jet. Cruise their website, and you will find all sorts of cool stuff.

Hope this helps

I haven't ordered from them since they got back up and running, but Lone Star Balsa used to carry fiberglass tube.
The best bet is to seek out your local kite shop and support them if you have one in your home town.
