    Try Vortec International they have the original Bensen B7 & B8 plans.

      IMHO, Bensen never offered a non-funky-looking tail set. The Bensen metal tail weighed a ton and looked kinda of patched-together to me. Dr. B. used straight-line cuts on both the wood and metal tails, to make them easy to build.
      No other gyro manufacturer has dared to offer anything so brutal-looking.

      Rounding off the sharp corners improves their appearance quite a bit.

      Ken Brock's tails were prettier.

          It was factory-built tail group complete and ready to install. No plans were available.

            No plans.
            Just cuts and fit so it looked right.
            I put the Horizontal stab what I believe to be where the majority of the thrust of the prop would be to make it as effective as possible.
            With 8 hours of testing it seems to be very stable.
            All pieces are .125 2024, sheared to size.
