I would suggest just purchasing one for the small cost. Align makes them for quite cheap, and the quality is very nice! Aligns gauge works on helicopters from 450 size right up to 90 sized machines too.
you don't need CNC if you are handy with a torch.

You would need to have a dollar. With a dollar, you can go the the Dollar Store and
buy a protractor. Make templates on acetate plastic Lets say 5 degrees, 6 degrees,
and 9 degrees. Use a permant Sharpie fine point for drawing your outlines.
