    Where do you get yours? My last order came from ACP composites, think that was the name. LHS is very exspensive.
    Sold all my glows n fly mostly foamies now except for one gasser.

    RE: Inexspensive carbon fiber tube

    Thanks Karol, but those are kind of short. I have ordered lots of other stuff from them.
    ACPSales.com is where I got my last ones, 48 inches. Midwest are 40 inches or 1016 mm.

    RE: Inexspensive carbon fiber tube

    I agree with Roger, "carbon fiber" and "cheap" are mutually exclusive terms! Having said that, you might try somebody who sells stunt kit supplies and replacement parts as CF tube features prominantly in there design.

    I've had very good luck with dragonplate.com Their service is excellent and their prices are reasonable.

    For example, a 1/2" OD tube 72" long with 0.10 wall thickness is about $26. They have a huge product lineup.

    Try tnt landing gear these guys they have been great to me. They sell them with or without the socket. They only have aluminum tubes but the ones I have got from them are very good quality and seem to be quite light weight.
