Default F3A shocky aileron control horns

I'm putting together my first foamie, an F3A shock flyer. I'm at the stage of attaching the control horns for the ailerons but have noticed that only one of the ailerons is pre-punched with holes to mount the control horn. Is this a mistake in manufacturing or is it supposed to be like this? I'm thinking its intentional so that you can get the geometry for the aileron linkage right with the off-center servo placement? If so can anyone tell me how i go about getting the control horn in the right plane on the "un-punched" aileron?

It is a mistake in manufacturing, using the other one as a guide. flip it over and drill a couple holes. Don't worry about the offset geometry of the servo linkage, it is not noticeble in flight. You are really going to like the way this flies, BTW.
