Parts for the increase in length of the redesigned Elevator.

The Elevator length has been increased by 218mm(8.59") accordingly. The Elevator and spar's length are now increased from 2180mm to 2398mm. The Stabilizer length has also been increased by 218mm(8.59") to a full 2438mm(8.00') from the design length of 2220mm(7.28'). The original design called for only 2 nose ribs... 2 more nose ribs are added for a total now of 4... much better considering the 0.016 covering skin. The trim tab will also be modified to match the CH750 trim tab. See the Stabilizer page for other dimensional changes of the Stabilizer parts...
