I am kind of leery cutting into my plane on an experiment, so I played around on Realflight instead.

I downloaded an easystar model off of the knifeedge forums, added the ailerons, and then tried to tweak them around. No matter what I did with them, I was still not seeing a significant improvement to the roll rate. Next step: I cut off the swoop part of my wing. Voila! Instant satisfactory improvement. While I am still somewhat leery...I definitely feel better about this mod instead.

Any input on this? What is the downfall of doing this? Seeing as how it's pretty much a permanent change, I could use some of your guys' (and gals) thoughts to help me make my decision.
