I'm in the beginning stages of building Bruce Kimball's Hoosier Kitty 2 and the plans mention a MRL small carbon tailboom.

When I go to the MRL site, it currently says that the owner is out of bandwidth.
Can anybody provide information on this carbon tailboom?

Is it just a pultruded carbon boom?  Is it tapered ala Len Surtees Lennytube?
What diameter is it?  What does it weigh?

Thanks,
Stan

The small tail booms that I purchased from Stan are excellent!

While I appreciate the plugs for Stan's Stuff, what I really want to know is what kind of tube it is and the basic dimensions.

Is it a pultruded tube, or is it wrapped?  Basic dimensions and weight?

Wrapped. Very strong, very light, and tapered. Afraid I don't know the sizes, but if you order what he recommends for the size/type of model, it will fit the bill. My impression is that his tubes are as good or better than whatever else is out there.

Stan's boom, measured from a small TLG boom which appears to be the same as the CLG boom, except the CLG boom has been sanded:
20 inches long
0.181 inches OD to 0.123 inches OD

I don't have a good weight for the boom itself.  Weight WITH hardwood pivot block and wire DT hook is 4.2 grams.

Weight of a Stan CLG fuselage, with boom, viscous DT timer, and front portion of fuselage, with total length of 23.25 inches (boom length of 16.25 inches) is 8.0 grams.  This does not include the wing mount or pivot rivet.
