Im plans building a 750, and I would like someone who is KIT building to take some measurements for me.  The plans do not show where to drill the spar line.  Is someone could please measure from the rear most bend of the flap to the spar line that would help me along.  Any takers?

Hi Jesse!  I have my flaperons in the extra bedroom...waiting for the fuselage to be completed.  I'll be happy to take some measurements's 11:30 PM here.  If I understand you right, you would like the dimension from the trailing edge along the skin surface to the rivet line at the spar.  Is that correct?  I'll send a picture of what I'm measuring along with the dimensions.  Frank Pisz

that would be awesome.  Im sure we can clear up any problems with the pictures to make sure we are on the same page.  You da man.

Hi Jesse!  Sorry this took so long...I had two customers to take care of this morning.  Anyway, I measured 191 mm from the trailing edge to the centerline of the rivet line on the convex side of the flaperon and 186 mm from the trailing edge to the centerline of the rivet line on the flat side of the flaperon.  The pictures below show how the measurement was taken.  Hope this helps.

that's awesome.!! thanks
