Carbon Fiber Boom for V400D02
 
11 Attachment(s)
This is a little how to on makeing a cf boom, and mounting a brushless motor to the stock fin of the Walkera V400D02.

I got my 8mm x 1000mm carbon fiber tube from rcfoam.com. I thought i could get three booms out of that length, but it got bent in shipping, and cracked right in the center, so i was only able to get two booms out of it. It was not long enough for three booms anyway, but i could have used it for something...

I used only basic tools that I have, (old drill, some file bits, and a cutting bit). I should invest in a good dremell tool, but would rather spend my money on upgrades.
