Postal Charges

England, Wales & Scottish Lowlands
75 cm items will be sent in a postal tube by Royal Mail. 150 cm items will be sent in a long postal tube by courier - this increases the postal cost.

UK Islands, NI & Scottish Highlands
All items will be cut down to 75 cm length and sent by Royal Mail unless this postal charge is added to the basket.

Europe and Rest of the World
75 cm long items will be sent by Airmail post at low cost. Longer items will be sent by courier - this will increase the shipping charge considerably.

If even numbers of 75 cm long items are ordered we reserve the right to send half the number of 150 cm items to simplify packing.

Good quality tubes but need a lot of sanding of the inner one if it is to fit inside the larger.

Ok carbon tubes. Do what they say they're gonna do do but broke pretty quick on the kite in in medium strength wind. Not sure if you supposed to use it for kites to be fair

Foamboard Plane Modder

Great carbon fibre tube for various RC plane applications. I use it primarily to reinforce FB sections on most models, glider wing spars and tail booms, control rod guide tubes etc. Great for cutting weight while increasing strength and rigidity. Cheapest source with consistent quality I have found yet.

Nice and strong and super lightweight!

Excellent product, Item as described, fast shipping and delivery (to Croatia… now EU member). Much better quality then cheap ones from HK... Walls are thicker so if you need lighter, could be sanded so... I like package tube :) Use for other tubes and spares also :)
I use them for my 600mm DLG scratch projects...
