Placing the Stolspeed VGs on the 701

For the main wing, place the front tips of the VGs 140mm in front of the main rivet line on the top of the spar.  There are two rivet lines out near the tips, but use the line that runs the length of the wing.
Starting at the wing tips, place the first 15 VGs at a spacing of 60mm with the template, then the rest at 90mm spacing.

For the tail, place the VGs on the elevator rather than the horizontal stab.Place the front tips of the VGs 120mm in front of the rivet line on the underside of the elevator spar, at a spacing of 30mm.  The curvature of the elevator increases at this point, and basically you are just trying to get the VGs as far forward as possible.
