Default RE: Extreme Flight 87" Yak 54 - Build & Fly

Since my stab tube is not exactly in line with my wing tube I was going to "untwist" my fuse using Bodyworks technique. However, after blocking it all up I am thinking that I will leave it alone... I blocked the fuse up and used the meter part of my Robart incidence meters rubber banded to the wing and stab tube to measure vertical. After blocking the wing tube vertical I slide the stab tube and meter into the stab hole and it's off my less than 1/4 bubble... The wing tube incidence meter reads 0 degrees and the stab tube meter reads a little less than 1 degree. If no one thinks this technique for checking alignment of the wing and stab tubes is broken I think I'll leave it alone...
