So I have built some  7 plus RcPower and FFrc planes, and now building my RCpower v5 series planes, before I build I usually watch some videos of the plane and read forums on build, but some threads are 1000 plus post and that is abit much, I could be building or flying, I just started on the v5 series and saw some interesting mods to the leading edge, ( pictured below on F-18 ), I was wondering what degree of angle to I use on the leading edge and does it change from plane to plane. and should I use foam bracing and distance between bracing, any tips or pics of your design would be greatly welcome
Thx!

it is all in the plans just put them where the plans show and it comes out great.

Not in the v5 series, will look at others

V4 series uses underwing hardpoints glued to the wing  cut to the correct angle to glue the leading edge too
angle is usually @20-25 deg
word of caution they really slow the plane up i have the V3 F18 with the V4 leading edge slats wouldnt use them again too draggy
KF4 is a far better mod than leading edge slats 
experiment with a 5mm upper KF and 3mm lower KF great lift at slow speeds but all the advantages of leading edge slats but speed and stability of the KF4 but none of the drag

Our FRCFoamies are 21 degrees! The template that glues onto the wing sets it. Best combo of lift and speed IMHO.

would happen to have a How To Video, want to make sure I am doing this right

We have the angles on the support pieces (missile rail looking things)cut to 21 degrees so there is no guessing. They should be on that plan as well!
