That's interesting, I've found that ailerons, especially strip type can cause a wing stall as you get to very slow speed and large deflections, when I'm doing high alphas I find the tailerons will allow large deflection control and the plane won't drop off one way or the other. Might be that you've had to tone down the throw too much, on all my tailerons, I'm running pretty large deflections.

I'm looking forward to building a 2nd one and fine tuning the construction.
