    Servos are generally centered to the control surface because that more equally exerts the pressure on the surface. If place near the end, there is a possibility that the surface may twist in flight.

    As Dave said, the Senior Sport cowl may be a bit short. It was, when I use a .91 Surpass. You can see it in the pic that I posted earlier.

    That deck was self inflicted "pain.' I started out to resurface the old deck and the project doubled. LOL

    It ended well, though. We spent the rest of the Summer entertaining and relaxing out there.

    I'm surprised that you can live with the strong odor off shellac, and not the relatively odorless polyurethane.

    I manufactured paint for years, and I still can't handle shellac. LOL

    I've always been an early riser. I spend these early hours drinking coffee and browsing the forums.

    After that, weather permitting, I walk, and then head out to the shop. :D
