Default plans(how they work)flaps/ail.TF-p47???

please don,t laugh @ me , i'm a newbie to the exciting world of rc flying, all kinds of gadgets-i love it crazily, low fuel indicator, low voltage, autopilot etc, strobelights, my question to experienced rcers or anyone knowledgeable, is how can you buy a plan and build a plane from it, planes that i now possess were kits that i bought and assembled from instructions came with kit,another question! any suggestion on flaps on the p47topflite followed instructions with a fine tooth comb but can't get flaps to work properly, one will go down while other will bearly move, i was looking @ the fowler flap hinge @ hobbylobby and robart, would any of those items make it easier to achieve a successful flap operation system, another area i am having trouble with is the aileron setup, the servo is jamming when trying to operate, is there an easier setup if you are familiar with the tf p-47d, the bellcrank and that servo sitting in the middle is not working favorably, i want the scale operations very much i will not give up, i love the building aspect as well as the flying, this kit i have been taking my time in order not to screw it up, 2.5 years now working on it, i am now looking at a giant, don't know if it will be a war bird or a civilian, i know it will be one with all bells and whistles. anyway i won't run my mind anymuch further, your suggestions on the flaps and aileron setup is vital, await your suggestions eagerly.

Don't know how you can get an answer to your problems with the aileron or the flaps without actually seeing what is going on. You've got linkage problems that have to be visually inspected.
Check with someone in the local club(s) that has a good grasp on kit building or go to a local hobby shop and have them take a look at it. I'm sure there is someone in the Raleigh/Durham area that can help. Don't disappoint yourself building a giant until you have the P-47 construction mastered.
I think you might have taken on a project that may be a little beyond your experience at this point. This is not a put down so don't take it that way. Nothing like making a mistake and learning from it. (That's why we call it experience) As long as you don't get discouraged and give up.
As far as scratch building from plans, again you might be taking on a little more than experience dictates. I've been building kits for over 40 years and still learning (and screwing up).
