With such an aileron, model response is very good.

On the edge of the cover I drilled some holes, a bit smaler than the screw will be. I temporarily taped it in place and drilled holes in the frame too.

I enlarged holes on the cover and screwed it in place to see how it fits. The gap that remains will be filled later, when other covers are made.
