Not ready to talk about that yet Brian................

The second photo does show the gap to have closed a little on full up but that is only because the end is unsupported with the tip block removed.

Suffering aileron-envy here.

Often known to hinge my ailerons using the "Diamond tape" method. Highly technical. ;)

Mesmerising workmanship as ever Robbie.

Thanks for comment Rog.

Don't worry about the 'Diamond' tape, after the last few weeks it has taken on a whole new appeal for me. I'm a fan anyway, used it lots over the years when its been possible.

Had a sport aerobatic model pile into the slope at a trillion mph some years ago - amongst the sea of 'confetti' there were the ailerons still stuck to the top balsa sheeting/glass cloth with 'Diamond' tape. Be very sad when my last roll runs out.

Sod stripping it all off, I'm just going to patch the bay and hide the joint when I paint - it's underneath anyway.
Well that's two, just waiting for number three to come along now. This is doing my legendary, speed of light building no end of good......................

.........but it would take a lot of the pain away Cliff.

Been sorely tempted to put the whole b****y thing through the shredder before now.

Uuummmmmm . . .. You used 'Left twisted' servo wire in the right wing ? ? ? :? :? :roll: :roll: :D
BTW, I bet there isn't a fullsize M100 out there that doesn't have any patches . . . a flying one that is. 8-)
You won't see it at 500ft anyway. (the patch I mean :lol: :lol: :lol:

That'll do nicely. That yellow should be easy to spot in a blue sky.
