I use 3/32"outside dia aliminium tube from a store in Kitchener called Flight craft [across the road from Natural Sports].Comes about two ft long.For the ends I drill out small craft store plastic beads so they fit over the ends of the tube glue all together with epoxy and good to go. The messy part is glue the tube in the balsa without getting it inside the tube.
