    Love LOC stuff

    LOC customer service is great along with the cardboard airframes and MMT they offer. Used them for many scratch built projects.

    Strong airframe

    Very strong paper for high performance without using higher weight material. Fin slots are precise and clean, much better than hand cut

    1.52" cardboard tubing

    Used this to extend the payload section of an IQSY Tomahawk to accept recovery gear in a dual deploy configuration. Arrived quickly, and was just what I needed.
