I did 56s' and they are a TIGHT fit. Routed to papaer thin foam and then still ended up with a .5mm of servo sticking up on the TE side of it. I'll be happy till one of them stripps! I'd looked for 65 MG but, could not find'em locally. Not positive they will fit either though!

Sam, I orderd mine on the 4th to Ventura. I sent Ming an email a day or two ago and got this answer today....

So either they are just getting ready to ship everything that wasn't a pre-order, or they are ??verbally?? confirming orders before shipment. You might want to send a courtesy e-mail to the man just to check.

Shouldn't be any problem. Spoilerons don't take the abuse that
flaperons do in terms of aerodynamic loading and running into
ground clutter.

Fiber tape will work, but remember you need to cover it with something else
UV resistant like a colored tape, iron on covering, or UV resistant Goop.
Fiber tape by itself will break down in the sunlight really fast.

If you just want some quick protection cover the leading edge with
3M 375 series or 3580 clear packing tape. Having a dead straight
leading edge makes it pretty easy.
