Really sorry to hear about your job. Hope everything will turn out well.

About the tail boom. Apparently a paper clip should work. Here's a video on youtube that shows a guy using a paperclip instead of the original tail:

Doesn't show you how well it flies but should be alright.

Hope that helps.
