Also Joel, i have a lot of slop in the rudder, much more than the elevator. Do you have any pictures with the fix you talked about, i think i remember you saying ages ago about putting some CA on the wire where it joins the plastic to stop it moving there?
I don't have any pics, but it's pretty straightforward. I put a small drop of ca in the control horn hole, with the pushrod in place. After the ca cured, I just broke the pushrod loose with my fingers, leaving a ca 'bearing' that removes the slop in the horn. I also tweaked the rudder pushrod bit to improve the geometry & make it more of a straight path.
Here's what happened to mine at WOT on 3s before I braced the horizontal stab. Definitely got my attention!
