Hey y'all,

Can somebody provide a full size template for the subject horizontal stabilizer? I need to soak off the existing damaged one and replace it with new.

Thanks

When you say "plans" do you need the original instructions? If so I am sure I can dig those out for you...

Please advise

What I mean to say is that I need the approximate dimensions of the horizontal stabilizer.

Thanks

I have the old MPC version of the Flat Cat that has the dual vertical fins. Is that the one you have?

The Quest version has a single vertical fin.

I could measure the one I have if that would help.

Thanks guys...

I have the Quest version.

On second thought, I will probably just build another.

I enjoyed it the first time around and certainly would again.

About the foil...

Should the forward edge be a half round or quarter round?

The quarter seemed to perform quite well.

Thanks guys.
