Aluminum or steel tubing, what plane are you building and where will the joints be located?

3 things that dont matter altitude above you runway behind you and the gas back at the hanger

takeoff is optional landing is mandatory

Fly only in the middle of the air, the edges are identified by buildings trees and houses, and it is much more difficult to fly there.

It is better to be on the ground wishing you were flying then flying and wishing you were on the ground!

As I understand it splices are ok but they have to meet the 10 to 1 rule where the splice has to be 10 times as long as the thickess of the parts you are joining. Splicing two pieces of 1" tube you would need to cut diagonally 10 inches in the joint and weld them together (following standard post welding practices for the metal in use). I don't know whether a slip tube (over or inside) the other tube would work due to the stress applied at the end of the tube.
I am just a model builder learning construction as I go so I may be way off base here.
