My apologies for not including dimensions to help locate the spar and hinge line locations for those of you that bought the non transparent full carbon parts.

I simply purchased some pylons so I could provide them with my tails for guys that might need a mount .
See more on the mounts here
But to be more specific on the mount Craig made for my tail dimensions see this post http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...8&postcount=10
