Builder's tip:
It just occurred to me that I had forgotten to mention a certain step while gluing in the remaining sheet of balsa on the aileron surface that I think you will find useful. As you know the top portion of the aileron was sheeted, but the bottom surface was left uncovered. After the hinge blocking was installed I spread Titebond glue on all of the rib surfaces in preparation of the bottom skin. I did not apply Titebond along the trailing edge of the aileron's sheeting, instead I used a thin bead of epoxy. Try this the next time you join the top and bottom TE on your aileron or flap and you will find that the epoxy will give you a very rigid edge that the Titebond glue won't be able to do.
