PostSubject: Alternative to Carbon Fiber for making parts. *LEXAN*   Fri Nov 06, 2009 4:26 pm

I kept breaking the aftermarket vertical stablizer I got with the skid kit from Heli Direct, so I went to a local shop that supplies all kinds of plastics for making signs and other stuff...

I picked up a small sheet of Black LEXAN 1/16-in (Might have looked for something thinner) and made a new tail piece... It cuts okay with a hack saw to get the basic shape then I used a buddies Grinder and shaped it, then used sand paper to smooth the edges out and a Green Kitchen *Scrubbie* to finish it further..

I gotta say, this stuff is still flexible a little and is strong as hell... I probably will totally smash the entire Heli before this stuff ever breaks...
