Default DD construction question

I have 3 pc triangle stock. I don't see any mention of where 2 of these go. Are these for the leading edge or did I just get a bonus in the kit.
Thanks
Mum

Some of it is for the TE of the wing..he used tri stock for the bevel. On the plans it's shown to be on the TE of the wing instead of the LE of the Elevon.

Not sure about the 3rd piece. Seems like around the motor mount plate?? Been a while....

check your plans out real good. it shows it in there. i think it shows it from angles that is hard to see.

But I tell you one thing. The next one I make I will put some soft light Styrofoam all in the wings then shave it and sheet it. I love the plane for being so light but any little thing puts a ding or puncher. If you get a puncher then its over with for the day. At least this way will wont have to worry about it.

I always just carried a roll of clear packing tape in my flightbox when Dust flying. If i got a puncture from a weed, just slap some tape on it and go again.

well I carry some clear tape also. It is just a pain to keep repairing. Also after a while it starts to look a bit raggedy.

And for some reason seems like I do this mostly by taking out or putting into car.... I can fly a whole day no probs.. then that....haha go figure

Yes, I do most of my damage in the car also. And.. I'm moving cross-country starting today. I packed the mini van last night. Let's see how much repair time I'm in for when I hit the ect coast.
