Default H9 Ultra Stick 40 Elevator & Rudder

At the moment i am building a H9 US40 and the problem ive come across. Is when the elevator is fully up it touches the rudder.
And what i wanted to know is any one else had the same problem. If so wat was the fix.

Default RE: H9 Ultra Stick 40 Elevator & Rudder

I am also currently flying a H9 Ultrastick. I just went and looked at mine and noticed the same thing. I have pretty much maxxed out my
elevator. I am using an extra long servo arm and my clevis is in in the first hole in the control horn. That's maximum for the hardware that came in the kit. I did turn my radio on and checked it and it looks like I'm hitting my rudder too, it's hard to tell. If it is touching though, it isn't putting my rudder in a bind or anything. Deflect your elevator up, then operate your rudder. If it seems normal, I wouldn't sweat it too much. It it seems to be in a bind, I would just remove a small amount of wood from the bottom of the rudder right there where the elevator touches. That shouldn't hurt anything and would solve the problem.

I have put several hours on mine and it has flown great. As for control throws, I like max. elevator. As for the ailerons, I'd stay within the recommendations at least until you are used to the plane. I set mine up for max throw on high rate, and minimum throw on low rate. On high rate this plane was much more aileron sensitive than I thought. But you'll like it. The plane snaps pretty good, does a pretty good flat spin too.
