Default Control horn goof

Greetings,

I should know better but I goofed installing the control horns on a 4 Star 60 rebuild project I am working on. Normally when looking at the rear of your airplane toward the front, the rudder horn is on the left with the elevator on the right. I goofed and put my elevator on the left. I really don't want to switch it around and haven't installed the rudder horn yet. As long as I switch the servos, will this matter? I have made a lot of mistakes but this one is a first for me :-). Thanks in advance for any responses.

Welcome to the world of modeling. I would venture to say that just about all of us had done this and not to worry as it won't cause a problem. Just run your controls like you normally would and you're good to go.

You'll probably have the hold you radio upside down to compensate for the reversed inputs to the control surfaces...
