    Thx I’ll need lots of help 
    so I need to have away to check the wash out if there is no way to adjust for it with lift struts . There are no tips or tanks at this point just spars and ribs.if I lay the wing on a long flat table the out board end of rear spar should be up how much ? 
    What is wing heavy trendinces in flight ? one with fills heavy ?
     I thought I saw 3 different tip types the point the longer finch point and one that looked like a mk Vl stol or hh wing tip,
    im wondering about no tip but an air dam just flat attached to the last rib but 1 in larger than the air foil shape 
    your gear looks great  I may need more info on it , how’s it compair weight 
     
    thx rjg

             Hi guys 
    i have a few magnum question ,the kit I’m considering is unfinished .wings are built not covered and have not bin fit to the fuselage yet 
    wash out- how is wash out built and checked after wards, is it adjustable after its built with the lift struts 
    false ribs - wings were built for wing tip tanks , no tanks are installed so just  install ribs right ,
          any thoughts on bottom false ribs ?
    wing tips-  or no wing tips 
    grove gear-before covering what needs added to acomidate grove gear 
    Thx rjg

         Would the horn itself (being in front of the hinge pivot point) catch air and lighten the elevator/stick and rudder/ peddle forces
    thx rjg
