what do you guesstimate the size of the radius on the long side?

don't worry about the radius at the bottom. we will take care of that with a chamfer for clearance. we want the measurements of the top edges. seems like we lost 0.5 inch going from 7.5 to 7.0.

Let me verify the 7.5"

I might have just assumed the previously stated dimension was correct and that I had it on the major markings on the ruler.

Gil, I'm trusting your first measurement. Print underway.

Steve, I just checked, it is 7.5 inches on the long dimension.

A 3/8 drill bit fits nicely inside the radius shown on the bottom of the long sides of the tray.

thank you. we are good to go. the print is almost done. I've been out flying doing a check flight after my condition inspection. the only mod I made was to drill off the seat back hinge upper adjustment to allow the seat to go fully back. small change but I like it.
