Ok, I'm hoping to fly the thing tomorrow, so I'll report back then. I'm not seeing much twist in the tail either though... Here's a picture of the Horizontal stab. in relationship with the main wing:

(Those rubber bands aren't used for flight btw, I just used them to temporarily mount the wing for this pic!)

Its pretty much dead even with the main wing. It may take a bunch of rudder to get this thing trimmed out too... I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure I tried using rudder in one of my first flights a couple months back, and I still don't think it really solved things.
