Where can i get an aluminum fuselage ( 9mm x 4.5mm x 24") for my PICO STICK?


I would like to get a stiffer fuselage for my PICO STICK, much like the one for my SLOW STICK. I would like to retain the PICO STICKS wing mounts, stab. mounts, ect., so that is why i am looking for that specific size. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

Check a sporting goods store for arrow shafts.
They will have aluminum, fiberglass and carbon fiber.
Several diameters but you'll have to check.

I got a piece of rectangular aluminum from company called Special Shapes in Illinois, it wasn't the right size so I had to make all new mounts, the only problem with aluminum, is that it bends very easily

OK, So they changed it?

.2" x 25.4 = 5mm
.32" x25.4 = 8mm

IF you find 4.5 x 9mm you WILL be disapointed.

I measured one I have here... I doubt it's changed...

The IPS mount is 5x8mm, the EPS mount is 10x10mm, the LPS mount is 4.5mm round.
