Alpha wingspan

#1
I have a wingspan question about the Alpha jet plane. On the website, it is given for 735mm wingspan but the kit I received gives me a 605mm wingspan. Could somebody explain to me the difference or is it just not correct on the store website.

It appears that the metric conversion got goofed. It is 24 inches. 609mm.

Okay. Sounds right. 24 inches is 609mm indeed. So all the Stem planes have a wrong mm wingspan. Josh should correct this on the website.

I will not bad talk Bixler!!...... But if you've watched enough FT Build Videos, you'll constantly hear Josh doing his "conversions"...

"It's 5/8" or 20cm"!!
"When doing the Landing Gear, measure to halfway through the Rod, 7-1/2" or 30cm".... !!!

I love that guy, but he has no clue about Metric Conversions! :eek::geek:
