Default RE: Carbon Fiber Push Rods ??

No, they are not arrow shafts, but just some CF tube that my local hobby shop had in stock. I believe they are quite a bit smaller than arrow shafts. I usually wrap about 1/2 inch of the all thread with sewing thread, and then insert the rod 1/2 inch into the CF tube where the sewing thread ends. You could also use some JB weld after, but I never have. Like I said, I have tried to pull one out by hand and could not. I have had this system on 2 50CC 3D planes, and I am also using it on a 10ft wingspan scale twin. I will probably use it on anything I build from now on. Like I said, it is extremely easy and fast!
