Using, what I hope is an accurate drawing of the full size glider, I measured 160 degrees.... I also found a source of 6mm steel rod as well as 7/32 aluminum for replacing the stock wimpy wing connector rod.

Seeing as how the wing joiner rod sits at 50mm I'm hoping to use it to help get the balance forward and allow removing the 34g of lead I now use just behind the motor,

I just got my Moa today and measured the wing joiner for you. It is 10 degs each side or 20 degs total.

Or 180 degs - 20 degs = 160 degs. like you said.

Thank you. I feel much better now!! My plan is to ballast with different length/material for the wing joiner in order to fly at different overall weights..
