.620 -.625 O.D. on boom tenon [male]
average weight for the pods are between 26-29 grams
with a matching boom total average weight is between 44-48 grams
This design was made to fit most commonly used mini servo`s with a preference for the dymond d4.7 or hitec hs35 or similar.
Jr 285 are my servo of choice.

-CARBON FIBRE tail booms, Hand rolled using HM carbon fibre layered in light fibre glass
Large end has a .625 Inner diameter tapering down the .350 ID over a 31 inch length.
These booms weigh in between 15-17 grams for a 31 inch length and unbelievably stiff for the weights
-dimensions are designed to fit above mentioned pod

Items that I have not included in this kit
- Mounting of the horizontal stab has not been considered
- resin [epoxy or similar]
-push rods and/or pull strings and related parts
-servo connector for wing servos
-control horns for all surfaces
- radio gear, batteries etc

A few of the above items that are needed can be bought from one source . Give them a peak http://www.rcbuilder.com/Mounts-Horizontal_c_18.html

Hello, I got your name and web link from Curtis Suter. I just read your posting and pics of the dlg that you must be selling....not sure from the post. Orginally I was looking for someone to cut some cores for a dlg, at least two sets, I have purchased two kits of the Topsky and would like to bag some wings of my own for same plane...maybe you can help. I don't think the airfoil is all that critical but maybe you don't agree...also these parts that you are making for your dlg...do you have a selling price at this time. I purchased the video from curtis and realized cutting these cores is to much for me...please let know. cliff bryan
