Default Senior Telemaster ARF dihedral braces

I have lost the dihedral braces for my Senior Telemaster ARF. Will someone please post the angle and dimensions? I'd like to make a replacement set.

Thanks!

I made a set tonight from poplar purchased at Cheapo Depot. It took about 1.5 hours with all the sanding. I re-sawed a piece of 1/2" to 3/8 making two passes on my table saw. it took a little sanding to get it to fit.

Of course now that I've made a set, I'm sure to find the originals in the next day or so!

Will fly tomorrow!

Thanks again.

Exactly as I predicted, I found the braces! They were on top of the fuse of a plane I had stored next to the Telemaster. I must have looked right at them three for four times when searching for them.

Oh well, now I've got a spare set....

Growing old sucks.
