Our machined aluminum tube ends for Quicksilver MX aircraft act as both structural insert plugs for airframe tubes, and as an aesthetic finish for the open tubes of the stock kit.


From the shop:

In the early 1990's I bought my first Quicksilver and started putting it together in my living room. That wasn't a popular choice of locations with the wife but it was warm and dry and the room was huge and she got over it pretty quickly. As I starting bolting tubes together I couldn't help but notice how a bolt passing through a hollow tube could ever be strong.

Being a machinist by trade, I measured the inside diameters of the tubes and turned out a set of tube inserts that allowed me to properly torque the bolts without crushing the tube.

Some of our tube ends are just cosmetic and others are structural. The structural versions have thicker walls to withstand torquing. The result is a much more rigid flying machine.

Since those days I've made thousands of tube inserts for aircraft owners that heard of them by word of mouth.

 

Tube inserts are a custom item. We sell them individually or as an entire set. Please call to order:
