I see people using 2" square tube in support of building these planes. How many pieces and how long should I buy to construct a 650? Hopefully my kit will arrive within a month. Thanks.

Hi Alan, These 2"square tubes were a joy to build my 650 with! as I recall i used (2) pieces 10 ft. long and (4) pcs four feet long. I am one week from painting the completed fuselage and all other parts are painted, next is taxi testing and inspection!

My tubes are for sale. I can check the length and suggest a lot price for all of them if you are interested. What is your location? I am in the midwest. Pickup is great and shipping is probably expensive. Mine were from metal supermarket and io have seen their prices triple since I started building 9 years ago (busy running a technology company - I am a slow builder. Best Regards, Larry Zepp
