The Main BT is: 10-3/3" Long, and the short section is 1-1/4".
this is a great flying little model, fly's super on an 1/2 A.

Hi Neal,

10-3/3" Main Body tube length? That would be 11" long. Using your ruler in the photos you posted, looks like your dimensions are close to what Earl referenced.

Measured off an unbuilt kit.

The thing I don't have are the decals. I have one opened kit and two sealed. This particular mini roc is one of the harder to come by.
