Item Number: KDE700-PBSA-M3
Design Geometry Diagram: CLICK HERE

Price: $38.95
Material: Aluminum 6061-T6, Ultra-Strength Carbon Fiber Matrix (U.S.A. Produced)
Models: High-performance 700-class Electric and 90/120-class Nitro series helicopters. See the full Compatibility Chart for details on application to the vast majority of popular RC Helicopter brands and models on the market.

Note: the KDE Direct 700 Series Performance Boom Support Assembly, M3 Version encompasses a series of specialized design features targeted at preventing the problematic loosening and resultant failure (telescoping) of the critical Tail Boom Support of the 700-class Electric and 90/120-class Nitro helicopters. Due to the caustic and high-frequency vibration environment of RC helicopters, these upgrades are a necessary enhancement to maintain the structural integrity and performance of the helicopter tail mechanics and control. The Boom Support Assemblies are produced and assembled 100% in the U.S.A.; including the highest-quality, ultra-strength carbon fiber tubes manufactured in the U.S.A. to yield high-stiffness and lightweight characteristics.

Important: the Performance Boom Support Assembly utilizes the best materials and bonding methods to produce the optimum setup available on the market. The assemblies utilize 700/800-class (6.1mm O.D.), high-carbon content carbon-fiber tubes for high stiffness, ultimate strengh, and minor weight addition.

The Boom Supports are fully-assembled at our production facility. Due to the high-strength epoxies used, the Boom Supports cannot be disassembled without excessive damage to the components.
