I suppose that is what it amounts to. The plane rolls to the left because the wings are slightly off when fully extended. I put it together exactly as it was cut out but when I put in the wing pivot circles it looked to me like one was slightly different than the other. I'm guessing maybe the CNC router was a bit off? Or I could have drilled something slightly off...

When I got the wings put together I noticed one didn't open as far no matter what I tried (longer, shorter rods, etc) To compensate, I made a new servo arm piece and added a few holes on one side so I could adjust the distance from the center of the servo to affect the final position of the wing in relation to the other.

Aside from working more on getting the wings to match I was thinking that adding some rudder, rather than aileron, to trim it out.

Or, do you have a better suggestion or any hints for getting the wings to even up?
