Default RE: Kit: Glue technique

Sorry for the confusion.
I searched on here for a drawing that some of these guys have done (maybe somebody will read this and respond), but couldn't find one, so I took somer pictures of my elevator.
In the first picture, you can see where the horn will end up if installed using the supplied mounting holes.
In the second picture is were it should be installed, with the holes were the clevis attaches right in line with the pivot point of the CA hinge.
I hope this helps.
Sorry there blurry, but I think you get the idea.

OK. Now I understand...I did not know that the horn had to line up to the hinge location....
So you position the holes of the horn lined up to the center of the hinged surface?

Yea, basically. You want the holes lined up with the pivot point of the hinge so that it will move the same amount when the servo pushes or pulls the horn. I will send a PM the RC Ken (he has helped me alot) to see if he has a drawing.

So I am now building the stab, aileron etc.

I thought the horn mounts were "depressions" but they are drilled all the way through.

If I have to move them forward, how do I fill the holes left behind in the balsa? These pieces are 1/4" thick and the hole is at least 1/8".

Also, the hole that is farthest from the LE needs to move forward 1/4" which puts it "just behind" the original forward hole. I am worried about strength if I drill a new hole right beside the original forward hole....so the "filling in" needs to have structure.
