I started with a stock 20" x 30" sheet and scaled in all the dimensions the best I could. I think you will find them very close to what you have actually built. The attached photo is extracted from the CADS program to show the dimensions I came up with, mounting positions for the CF rod and rudders, and the cut lines for each of the pieces. If you will please look it over and see if it looks correct to you. If I need to make changes, just let me know.
Thanks for doing that! The only thing I would change is make the elevons at least 1 1/2" , which is what I have. I made the plane for a friend to learn to fly with ailerons ( elevons ) , so I wanted to keep the roll very mild - but 1" might be too mild .
