I think I've found the problem. Someone is trying to mix decimals and fractions. Look closely.

Thanks, Buddy.
Yes. Nick Ziroli uses very traditional structures and techniques. My understanding is, he is not above deviating from exact scale for better flight performance. Just a heads-up.

C'mon, now. Don't be such a tease!
