So I'm looking at ordering my aluminum for my tail surfaces. The only thickness on the tubing I can find is in the forward portion of the plans where Leonard calls for .035" tubing. I look at the material list:
4' - 1"x.058"
4 ea 1 1/4x'058x122'
2 ea 3/4x.035x12'
2 ea 5/8x,035x12'
1 ea1/2x1/2x .062angle
I know this can't be correct, especially the 122' of 1 1/4. Where would I use 1 1/4" anyway? Help, what are the size tubes being used in the XL and where?
As for as the 7/8 .065 tubing I got from Wicks, a 3/4 4130 fits nicely, I used a 3/4 inch tube inside the 7/8" tail post to hold the fuselage while I tack welded it.
