2 Quick Tips (wheel collets and CF Tube)

#1
#1 - All of those EXTRA prop adapter plastic thingies? Well, if you need cheap landing gear wheel collets, one of them fits dry cleaner hangers perfectly. Wheel - plastic thing, a little hot glue, done.

#2 - Want cheap CF tube? Don't search for CF tube itself. 12 pieces of CF tube, 2 feet long, (I think it's about 6mm but will measure) shipped to your door in 2 days by amazon for $20. You just have to cut the ends off the ARROWS, but a little dremel-fu does the job.

#3 if you got this far - learn the zen art of white gorilla glue instead of hot glue. Yes it's time consuming, but yes, it shaves weight.

Also, all those little extra servo horns make great latches too - just screw through the center hole so it can rotate over the edge of the hatch.
