What is the thickness and size of the standard L angle for the 750. I'm building from scratch and can't find it in the drawings. Thanks, Dave Ruhe

Hi David,

How is your 750 project coming along? It's nice to know that there are other 750 builders near by.

You must be a real sheet metal craftsman to scratch build this aircraft. The kit is more than enough of a challenge for me.

At this time I have the tail feathers complete and am starting on the wings. The kit seems to be well designed and requires a minimum of fitting and trimming. This has been a steep learning curve for me since I have no previous experience with sheet metal, but I am making steady progress.

You are more than welcome to stop by here in Ocala or call anytime. We live in a small residential airpark just south of Ocala, so you could fly down if you like.

.750 x .750 x.025 thk.with a .09r in the corner , is what's supplied in the tail kit. I hope that helps. It is described somewhere in the manual but I couldn't locate it, so measured the supplied angle.
