Does anyone have a good source of reasonably price carbon fibre sandwich panels?

I want to do better wing end plates.

I think carbon mods and easy composites are the same people one hobby one professional
Reverie are the choice for top quality work.

I'm getting some components made from carbon fibre in mallorca. I'm doing pedals, seats, aircon vents and a few other bits and pieces.

If people are interested I can ask for a group order and any parts. Its pretty inexpensive here with the yacht industry

I’d definitely be interested in the aircon vents, the plastic ones are crap.

If I can get some orders for the air vents then the price will definitely come down for sure.

I also recommend easy composites. The guys are a pleasure to deal with and for anyone so inclined, their courses are fantastic.

I'm also interested to know more about what the yacht guys can do and prices.

I work with the yachts and the yacht prices are a lot higher than what it would be for a carbon specialist in another industry.

Pedal set does sound cool but I'd really need to know they were autoclaved for the brake and clutch

I would be concerned that they had been engineered to take the loads exerted.

hi storer....you will not break solid carbon. If a 50m sailing mast can take the pressure which is the same thickness of what these are being made out of.....you will have to have a few people in the driving seat.

Also just for note that the IVA has no safety requirements on pedals which is even worst.

I know full well that carbon fibre is strong, but it is only so when the part is designed properly.

Engineering carbon fibre is complex. The (relatively) easy bit is the laying up. The skill is in the design of the moulds.

I love the idea but would want to see some comparative tests before using them on such a vital component.

At which point it becomes 'In the opinion of the tester' so you would need to convince him/her that you have got it right.
