    Good pirep Steve. That was a lot of Incidence added. A lower cruise makes sense. The brackets Javeron uses are different. They replace the spar attachment pieces with new, which have an offset hole. It would be difficult to visually tell the Javeron front attachment brackets from stock. It seems to me that increasing angle of incidence would means stalls will a bit lower deck angle.

    They are different than these?

    This is the Javron spar butt hinge bracket. It is 1/4 inch but, they also make larger offsets. It sells for $22. I was tempeted to try it on my Bushmaster/SP project but, that might be stretching rules a bit. Plus, I was not excited about losing cruise.

    I believe that is where these came from, 3/4" offset.

    If I remember correctly, a 1/4" offset increased angle of incidence one degree.

    1/4" in 30" is 1/2 degree, 1/2" is a full degree.

    Then I wouldn't think a 1/4" would be noticable. Putting more air in your tires might do the same.

    Stephen,
    Could you please post dimensions on your flaps? Overall length, I/B end to first hinge, center to center on the 3 hinges. Thank you.

    I'll get the exact numbers for you. I did use the same inboard flap hinge location from the Pacer wing. The other two locations are very close to the drawings. My Ailerons is made to SC dimensions. I started with the aileron located all the way out, then filled in with as much flap as possible. I tapered the flap inboard to fit closer to the fuselage. I'll get you the measurements.

    My flap is 90 1/2" and tapers to 89 3/8"

    The first inboard flap hinge is 10 7/8" from spar attachment hole, which is original. Number two is 44 3/8", which is what the plans call for. Number three is 77 3/4", which is 3 inches outboard of the plans but, gives better spacing of hinges on the flap.

    The aileron is SC length 102". The first inboard hinge is 109 1/4", 7/8" outboard of the plans. The second hinge is142 1/2", which matches the plans. The third hinge is 172 3/4", which is 3 inches outboard of the plans.
