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.

6mm Carbon tubes

Excellent tubes of a useful length. Light and strong. I thought the carriage cost was a bit steep, but it was a small order, and the tubes arrived the next day. Recommended.

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.

Great service, the carbon tube was exactly what I was looking for. Speedy delivery.
Definitely use them again. Thank

Carbon Tube 6MM X 5MM

The carbon tube was light, strong and straight. The diameter very accurate. The tube was fitted into 3D moulded "tubes" one of which was over 600mm long. The assembly was an easy task. The result was a light and strong structure. The packing and delivery were both excellent. Thank you.

Very tight dimensioning

After running an "STC Chart" for dimensions ( Found @ Captain Canardly's Blog @ RCGroups) The 6MM Carbon had the largest material conditions, however, the dimensions are well within .005" American standard on OD and ID, with .003" wall thicknesses

Product was OK , but I feel that the P&P was too much and the delivery was slow

6mm carbon fibre tube

This is a very high quality item that is to be used to join the wings of a 12ft wingspan radio controlled glider. Item was well packed in a cardboard tube.A great price for a specialist item.

Exactly as wished.
Tubes are strong yet slightly flexible and have a completly smooth surface.

 Review by:

Received tube promptly but was a little bent i only needed short lengths so was not a problem purchased plenty of carbon before always excellent quality

 Review by:

6.0 mm dia carbon tube

The tube I received was not as advertised on the website, the bore was too small. When I queried this I received a prompt apology, but no offer to take back the tube. Proper customer service would have been to offer to take back the tube at your expense. No doubt I will use the tube for something else, but I will buy elsewhere in future.

HyperFlight Comment
Thanks for raising this and apologies for our sloppy response. We have emailed to arrange collection of the carbon tubes so we can credit you.
