Weighed my wing panels this morning and found the right panel 15 grams heavier than the left. Not too bad I guess. Thanks for the tip, I will be doing a lateral balance after I finish the build.

While I was weighing the panels, I did find that the aileron on the left wing panel had begun to seperate from the wing along the hinge line starting at the wing root in the area of the control horn. This could have cause some control issues but I found a quick fix. I used some Shoe Goo to reattach the seperated section. I put a small amount in the gap, pushed the aileron back toward the wing, wiped off the excess Shoe Goo and let it set up overnight. This morning it was gooder than new!

Now back to work on the build.
