Subject: Re: Cross Tail Dimensions
Thanks John - I failed to look in the Misc Photo file - my goof. Another question I didn't find an answer to while searching the messages - has anyone used a carbon fiber leading edge on the bug to save some weight over the dowel - or is this just a dumb idea (I'm new to DLGs - so not sure if there is some technical feasibility issue here as well).
