Review by: Anonymous7mm carbon rod
I found the 7mm aluminium rod on my ROC Hobby 2200 electric glider was bending so I ordered this 7mm carbon rod to replace it.
Although it's longer, it's light enough that I simply tapped off the depth limiting washer from the old rod, CA'd it to the new one and use it without needing to cut it to length.
As always, very quick service from Neil and he's always been most helpful whenever I've phoned him for advice.
For me it's not only about price, service counts for a lot and Hyperflight can't be faulted on either.

As per previous poster, I bought this to lighten up a spirit elite ARF kit. In terms of diameter it fits exactly. It is also a lot lighter, the original steel rod weighed 98grams, this carbon rod cut to the same length is only 19grams.
Review by: Pete CarpenterJust what was needed
I bought this 7mm carbon rod to use instead of the steel wing joiner in my Great Planes Spirit Elite glider. By doing this, and replacing the heavy wire elevator and rudder push rods with plastic snake ones, I was able to chop 4oz off the weight.
As always, a great service from Hyperflight.
