Given my rescue project was sitting outside for a while, some of the steel tubes/connecting rods are corroded and I am inspecting them all. Some of them I had to cut already so I am wondering if replacing steel connecting rods with carbon tubes is a good idea.

Quickie brain trust … What are your thoughts? Replacing steel with carbon? And yes I know, I still need to watch corrosion due to dislike conductive materials.

Love building planes almost as much as flying. Latest completed build is "Loki", a Chinook Plus 2 bush plane.
