Default TRex 600/700 Tail Boom Info Needed

Hello everyone. I am currently designing a large airplane that utilizes a tail boom for the tail surfaces to mount onto. I looked at the general dimensions of the TRex 600 tail boom and it is about the right length. I am wondering if anybody knows the wall thickness of the TRex 600 aluminum tail boom. Also, is the tail boom completely round? I would also like to know this information for the TRex 700 as well. Also, if anyone can tell me the weights of just the tail boom itself, that would be really awesome.

Thank you all in advance, you will be a great help to my project.

It's round

I don't have numbers but its pretty thin walled. A heli uses boom supports and the only thing at the back of it is the tail rotor gear box so its not supporting a lot of weight. And its something any heli pilot stocks a spare or two at all times

I use the red aluminum booms on my T-Rex 600nitro and I weighed a spare at 54.7 grams. Wall thickness is .5 mm. Don't have a carbon boom so I don't have numbers for that or the 700 boom. The 700 carbon boom is actually aluminum wrapped with carbon fiber as is the 500 carbon boom. The 600 carbon boom is probably built the same way and they are probably stronger than aluminum alone.
