Filets

Thanks to Hofer, who has provided a great deal of info and measurements. Were on to the filets. The plans you get from Y/A have (zero) measurements, and are not to scale. So a great deal of thought and measuring needs to take place first. the old saying, measure once, cut twice doesn't apply here!!! For the stab insert, I cut 2 different airfoils, one at 100% the other at 106%. This way when I get the insert squared, and incedence set, I can line up the 100% template, and sand it to get a nice tappered filet. The tough part is to get a -5* on each side to get proper anhedral. Wing will be same method, but needs 2.5* dihedral each side. I got this far, just another hurdle to jump.
