Im building a tow bar for a KF2
Should the brackets fit tight against the fuselage or have a gap & let the cross rods take the load ?
Am worried about the side mounts wearing the fabric.

Thanks

The attach points on the fuselage should extend out past the fabric about 3/8" and should not allow the tow bar to come in contact with the fabric when attached.

I share your concern! My tow bar has just enough room on each side to insert a rubber isolator between the bar and fuselage.

I have a towbar for my KF2 that I believe was factory made and can supply dimensions and photos.
