I am putting together my first 50 cc plane. I would like to keep every thing neat and tidy. Were would I find wiring tubes. You know the ones going mid fuse back to the tail. I have seen pictures of these but have no idea were to buy them.

What about canadian tire, they have that 1/4 and 1/2 inch split flexi-cable that you can add wires to at any time. Looks like miniature Big-O.

Go to your local slurpy store and get a few of the large straws. If i need it longer I scotch tape them together.

It's called "Split Loom"

Any good electrical/electronic supply store will have it by the roll, in several sizes.

It's heavier then the paper tubes though.


When Frank goes to Toledo this year get him to pick some up for you. They sell 6 for $5.00 I think and they are usually all gone on Friday.

I happen to have some.

Roll your own

I don't do it, I buy mine from TNT...


I know guys who "roll their own" using brown shipping paper. Custom lengths available!!!

Roll it ( two or three turns) around a dowel to get it tight, then glue it closed with a bit of white glue down the seam. Tape the seam in a few places while the glue dries. Pull the dowel out.
