Re: installing tail wheel spring/ angle of incidence

Short answer: 7.8 degrees ground angle of attack when unloaded. My measurements were taken along the chord at BL50 on each side (left and right sides for both the wing and canard).
Since the tool measures the incidence angle at a number of points along the chord, the angle ends up being an average of those points (as compared to the WL on the original plans templates).
Your left and right canard vary by about 0.5 degree (left side has a higher angle), and together they average 6.76 degrees. Your main wing left and right are the same and average 8.8 degrees, so the average angle for the plane as a whole is 7.8 degrees, and your decalage is about +2 degrees.
If you have any questions, let me know.

Jay can you tell me what my angle of incidence was when you measured it.
