Howdy all;

His and Hers Hobbies, carries several lengths of the 4mm at about the best prices I have seen......$2.00ea for 30" and $2.50 for the 40" 4mm (.157"). The ones that are specifically used in the foamies...

They can get just about any size (dia) you need, but they stock these!!!

I get my composite cloth from US composites. [link=http://www.wildmanrocketry.com]Wildman Rocektry[/link] They sell carbon fiber body tubes for rocketry, in diameters ranging from 1.5 to 6". You couls also try making your own pieces by laminating cloth with epoxy.

Check out this website www.precisionaerobatics.com

Go to this link https://www.precisionaerobatics.com/...ry.aspx?gid=35

They also have carbon landing gear, carbon props, CF cloth etc.

It takes a bit of serfing to find everything in this website as they have many products in different categories but I find it worth while..

I found the best site for carbon fiber-it's cheap and exactly what you want for our aircraft, perfect for the foamies.

Hey Will, great site!! I hit three LHS today trying to find some CF to beef up the control surfaces of a new Hobby Lobby Pigi foamie, with NO luck anywhere.
Thanks.

changed my mind Will!!!!!!!!
Ordered stuff from nyblimp.com, aka Air Dynamics of New York, was shorted several items, charged for them, and have gotten NO reply from the three emails I've sent them in the last two weeks, and don't want to waste long distance charges on 5 bucks worth of mechandise (unless all else fails).....
