Elevator control wire tube fix

My ASW-28 elevator servo was sticking and never really centered on neutral. Quick remedy was to make the elevator wire exit at a more horizontal angle and lubricate the wire with a few drops of Tri-Flow.

I ended up inserting a small 1cm section of golden rod tube on top of the clear elevator control wire tube to force it down. Just stuffed it into the EPO rudder area and over the clear tube. Seems to work well. Trimmed the top of the rudder a tick also.

Balanced right on the money with the 2S 1300mAh 20C shoved mostly to the front, no other weight needed for fore and aft. The ASW-28 will just sit on my balancer forever and not move at all ! Side to side wing balancing required some adjustments due to me covering the winglets. One US dime in the small area under one wing and some small 40mm squares of white vinyl underneath the other wing.
