I’m about to make the cheek plates for a RFD slider head. What is the preferred gap between the pitch yoke and the slider pin receivers? What is the distance between centres of the upper cheek plate holes? And finally, should the slider springs be pretensioned or set up slack?

They are the standard cheek plate template. You adjust the springs after a few flights to get best results.
I will get the cheek plate measurements when I come back from the shop

What is the preferred gap between the pitch yoke and the slider pin receivers? this dimension is dictated by the mounting holes

Jake answered in a PM “ 3.5 inches centre to centre for mounting holes”
