I am attaching the slats to the wings on my 801. The instructions seem to have no measurement for the bottom of the slat to the wing - say from the bottom corner to the wing spar rivet line. I've asked that question to Zenith by email but no respons. All I need is a for someone to take their tape measure and check their own and tell me what they found. my email is fournier@kibidula.org Thanks. Jason

On the 701 we had to build a jig that was in the plans, which gave an exact standoff and angle. I cant see the 801 being any different. Good luck, I think the jig format was in the slats and flaps section of my plans..... Out of town for a few but I will check when I get back and post. Tom
