Thank you in advance.

I made a mold to make my own. Its not that hard of a project if you have access to a cnc and know some about wet layup epoxy parts. I use long square cut foam noodles and carbon sock and unicarbon strips. Wet out everything and stuff it in the mold and wait 24hrs. 10mins of trimming and you have a new joiner.. Just as strong as the oem version but a bit lighter.

I have 2 Stregas that have seen their fair share of damage and repair. Broken joiner is better than blown out joiner box or broken fuse.

Yes there is a small dihedral angle with a flat section in the middle.

Good conditions wing joiners rarely come up for sale because they are usually the first thing that gets broken in a crash and the first thing that gets accidentally lost.

+1. Contact Linda a RCRCM she is very responsive and will supply you the parts you desire.
I ordered a Tomcat EVO in custom colors from her last year and I had it in less than two weeks.
Compared to:
It took 11 months to get a replacement stab from NAN Models
I'm on a two year waiting list for a SRTL glider
It took 3-1/2months to get a Graecalis and they forgot to ship some of the parts.
