Don't know if it'll work or not, I've never seen a Topaz, but I have an excellent uncovered center panel off an Ava Mini, (100" Ava).

I bought the wreckage for the fuselage. Except for the covering and 1 or 2 carbon caps,the center panel was fine. It has a JR digital 285 on the spoiler.

dimensions are as follows

Span - 32 1/2"
Chord at ends 9 1/16"
8x12 mm joiner box - 2" from leading edge to front of box.

The left tip panel is probably rebuildable, but the right was toast.

Good luck finding one !! I've been looking for a year.
Repairing the wing is pretty straight forward until you get to the TE,it's really difficult to try and keep "true"

Topaz center panel

I am in the same boat and when I did find a repairable right wing tip the joiner was canted off forward. There seem to be so many different variations that I quit looking. Good luck with your search. I decided to build a bubble dancer wing or tips to use with what I have.

Center sections can be tough to get sans newest and most popular models.

How bad is you Center Section and could it be repaired by someone in your area?

Problem is I purchased this Topaz damaged and it was already repaired by a novice its wrong and ugly, I will repair it correctly if I have to its just tough undoing all the bad work and then do the repair.

Hoping someone might have a better one even if its damaged but untouched ???

I've been toying with the idea of just bagging a center section,only problem I'm trying to work through is where to get a rectangular spar/joiner box.I haven't been deep enough into the "D" box to see if the original can be removed/cleaned up/and used in a foam core
