Has anyone found a dealer for the 3mm ID x4mm OD stainless pipe and 1.5mm ID 2mm OD pipe? I can't find anything that small. They are parts N23 and N24 on the spreadsheet.

Also, when you say 2mm OD bolts do you mean m2 or something smaller like an m1.8 bolt?

Thanks!
Please search for the 3mm ID x4mm OD stainless pipe in the American country.
I do not know a place selling it in America.
You can substitute even an aluminum pipe of 3㎜ ID.
Or it can be made with a carbon board (thickness2mm*2).
Even if there is not N24, it is Ok.
"2mmODBolt" is Bolt of normal 2mm.

Does anybody on here have a large supply of orcofilm that I could purchase some of? Or if anyone knows how to get that free sample from or on directly, I would love to know how. In the meantime, here is my US adaptation of the bill of materials for the kestrel of anyone wants to use it or check it I guess.

Having looked into this for a while, I have to say this is an incredibly impressive design, Dr kazu. Thanks for making it publicly available to purchase, I hopefully will have all the parts to build one by the end of September. Thanks again!

Bill of materials download link, since rcgroups doesn't allow excel files:

Edit:

Never mind, I found some orcon a-36 here:

When you request the following sites with a sample of Orcon film EN158C, they may send a sample.
http://www.orcon.com/

I do not know a shop retailing Orcon film.

Orcon AN36 is very cheap.

You can purchase EN158C from me.
