Don't worry about it. It's better that you can use it then sitting in my spare parts box. I still have another spare if I need it plus a whole spare motor with one on it. I like to have spare parts with me I have spare evreything just about. Weather should be good tomorrow so get it out there and fly it. Tomorrow will be my first time flying in over a month. I was moving my shop for the last month so I'm so sick of moving boxes and equipment. I guess we'll find how rusty my thumbs are tomorrow.

Just picked a used mxs last night from a member rcgroups. The plane is in ok shape but needs some work. When I got home I noticed that the control horns in the ailerons were two different lengths. Is it possible to remove one of the horns without damaging the wing??? It looks like epoxy was used to secure them in place.

Yes- you can dig them out of the aileron, but it is an ugly project. You might find that it's easier to cut a block of balsa out (around the existing horn) and replace the balsa with a slot for the new horn as well.

What I don't know is if you can get the proper horn all by itself.....but if you had (or know) anyone who lost a 48" airframe....I'm sure they are the same part across all the 48's....

It's not an ugly project at all IF you have a dremel and the right size bit. Go slow and you can grind the G10 horn out while pretty much maintaining the original size slot. I'd epoxy the new horn back in.
EF has horn sets for the 48"s btw.

Should I just cut the horn even with the wing then just grind away a slot again in the same spot with a dremel??

I've never tried that with a dremel in balsa, grinding out a hard material like G10.
Interesting idea. How do you hold it steady enough not to chew up the soft wood around it? If that works, I'd call that a winner- provided you have the tools.

Cutting the horn even with the surface of the aileron seems like a reasonable place to start, if you are going to attempt this method.

Yes, cut the horn flush or slightly below the surface. I use a very sharp cutting bit smaller diam. the better. Tape the control surface still and really brace your arms steady. Go slow! It can be done very well.....I've had to do it before.
