Where to find rubber tube caps

Hi all,

I've seen it around a while back, rubbetube capsps like this on ebay:

[QUOTE]This is our 25mm rubber plug for multicopter carbon tubes.

Will fit on all multicopter 25mm tubes like Cinestar etc.


Main features/specs:
•Offers the best protection for the motor cables.(No more carbon tube contact).Can be also installed at both ends of the tube.
•Excellent quality/finish - Professional look.
•Lightweight.
•2 inner grooves.Can be easily shorten/adjusted with a knife and become even lighter.
•Will fit perfectly on all 25mm Outer Diameter tubes.
•Minimum Inner tube Diameter:23mm, Maximum:24mm.
•The center hole can easily fit up to 6 x 16 AWG motor cables for X4 configurations.
•Tight fit - No glue required - Can be removed anytime for repairs and upgrades.
•Material:Natural Rubber.
•Weight:5.6grtypical]

They where typicale like 0.45 USD each, I could just buy them on ebay, but the one the images came from it's like 21 USD for 8..

I designed these to fit a custom Quadframe build for a client. Wanted something to protect the wiring as it enters the tubes and give orientation cues. These are 3D printed and for 21.5mm tubes. Ill be doing them for 25mm tubes for an upcoming build. If there is interest I may consider putting them up for sale.

Very nice! You know those things are just begging for lights inside though
