This is the large length arm used in Octo 650 and Hexa 650 CarbonCore airframes.
The arms have a 1.0mm wall thickness and are made with only Carbon Fibre Cloth as this yields the highest ratio of cloth-to-resin. Epoxy resin is used. Compared to the cheaper, and brittle polyester resin commonly used in GRP fibreglass composites. The arms are cured for a specific time, temperature and pressure to fully polymerize the resin to achieve maximum strength. The difficulties overcome in manufacturing non-round tubes are offset by the fantastic weigh-savings and lower parts count. Making CarbonCore kits much stronger, lighter, simpler and faster to assemble.
