Default DagoRed Street-Racer

I just received the "DagoRed" Epp StreetRacer foamie. The wing seems to have spent too much time in a too small shipping box. As a result, both ailerons have what appears to be a permanent bad twist. I tried to reverse twist them (how much before they break?) with no progress in getting them straight. Tried clamping yard-sticks on either side, & let set overnight, still no progress. Thinking about a heatgun , but thought I'd better ask, first. ..... Once this problem is taken care of, I intend to start with a recommended size motor, but with some stabalizer & wing stiffning, looks like it could handle more power???? thanks, in advance, for your reply. ....................

EPP can take a twist or bend but it just as easily fixed. Use a small amount of heat and hold in the opposite direction. It will straighten out. Call me if you have any questions or need further help
