Strips On Ailerons.....help..

The strips that people hang from their foamy's ailerons to slow the plane down, are about how many inches up, down, left, to right? THis is because i want to slow down a biplane that i'm going to build.

Try to center them, also if you've ever seen the slow ride bipe, build another outer wing cabane, perpindicular to the first one running parallel with the fuse. Make it 1-2.5 inches, should slow you down a fair bit.
