Carbon wing tube and sleeve

Postby Dave Osborne » December 1st, 2018, 9:21 pm

Does anyone know where to buy a carbon wing tube and matched sleeve in the UK? I want one around 35 - 40mm diameter but I cannot find a UK supplier on the web. Plenty of aluminium and phenolic ones but not carbon. I could make my own outer but would rather buy one.

cheers Dave.

I've used this company in the past for carbon fibre sheet and had good service.

They should be able to assist with wing tube material.

Thanks Ken.
I know Easy Composites well. They do plenty of suitable carbon tube for the actual joiner. Its the outer tube thats the problem. It only needs to be a thin walled fibreglass material. The carbon tubes from Easy composites will nest OK, but using another carbon tube for the outer is overkill. As I said I can make one but would rather buy one. There are plenty of sources in the US but the postage to the Uk is prohibitive.

Cheers Dave.
