Wing tubes

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I need some help about wing tubes. I am building an 80in. span mid wing fun flyer with an airfoil similar to a Protege but tapering at LE and TE with a thickness of the root. Powered by an OS 91. This will be my first plane with plug on wings and I cannot seem to find wing tube dimensions. GP has lots of them listed as spare parts for their planes and so does H9, but do not identify what size they are.
With a small dihedral I think that the largest diameter tube I can use is one inch.
Can anyone tell me what plane uses a 1 inch tube so I can order a "replacement part"?
Any other suggestion short of making my own tube would be appreciated.
