    Thanks for any responses in advance.

    I have a black Friday special arriving in a couple weeks and I've entertained the thought of submitting a tail cone addition to my L3 project plans. Not immediately noticing manufacturers offering this item past 4.0 inch diameter air frames though. I have a plan B...cut a 8" nose cone down and retro fit a centering ring beveled to allow a 4" tail cone to fit a 98mm motor mount. Not a bad option...but wanted to check if other folks that have performed this or similar ideas know of commercially available 8" tail cones?

    Thanks again ALL!

    If you don't find a source I'll 3D print one for you if you design it.

    I just designed an 8" tailcone/retainer, but for a 161mm MMT. I am having mine CNCd out of aluminum, then anodized. I can send you the contact information for the guy doing the work.
