Evening all

Does someone out there have a piece of 3" and 4" CF tubing from Tim and a pair of calipers?

I need to know the OD and the ID of these two pieces of tubing.

I can email Tim but figured I would reach out on the forum first.

Disregard.

Tim verified that the dimensions are identical to the FG tubing.

I figured they were but for what I am doing, I needed to know for sure.

I have an unassembled 3" Punisher.

The OD of the main body ranges from 3.11" to 3.12".

The wall thickness varies from 0.055" to 0.060".

I'll let you decide how you want to calculate the ID.

I measured at a few places on both ends of the tube.

Curious what are the dimensions supposed to be?

I see on the Wildman site the body tube dia. is 3.12" OD and 3" ID. Pretty much on the mark compared to my actual measurements.

Good to know!

Yep!! thank you though for measuring your airframe! I have 3" and 4" FG airframe here with me and mine is the same as the website and your measurements so its really consistent. Its the same guy making the tubing so I know his process is what is delivering the consistency on the FG, so that means it will be the same on the CF. Or at least darn close.
