kshort Posted December 8, 2009 Share Posted December 8, 2009 Sent my elevators and ailerons to an experienced painter (didnt have the patience or shop to do it myself). Before painting all control surfaces balanced nose down per the plans.... Well when I retrieved them from the paint shop and checked them again.....all were tail heavy. NOT GOOD... a show stopper. TOO much paint. Solution Options : 1. try adding the .3 pounds of lead to them but if that fails I guess my options are to: 2. Sand off all the paint and filler and re-apply sparingly. (paint included) $$$ 3. Build all new ones (Big bummer). Is my logic sound .....??? Please help this poor 10+ year builder. KS Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
