All of the following sell many other products that can assist you in the construction and
flying of your Indoor models. This is not an exhaustive list and will be updated from time to time.
Some of the more specialist equipment you need is often only available within the indoor duration community – if you drop me an e:mail of what you need I may be able to help.
Your local model shop will also have some of the materials you require to help you build your model.

Metal knitting needles are useful as mandrels for forming rolled Motor Sticks, normally available in half millimetre sizes and about 400mm long.
Tail boom mandrels are more difficult – you have to try and find suitable sizes from fishing rod tips though Mike Woodhouse (Free Flight Supplies) does have some Carbon Fibre Tailbooms that are usable for F1D/F1R tailboom formers.
