(see picture in post above)

It may be hard to see in the picture, but the rudder doesn't line up like it should.

I do appreciate your advice, but I'm 99% sure it has nothing to do with the horizontal stab.
Ok....didn't mean to offend....as I said, I can't really see anything from your photo...

No worries, I know you are the master builder. I really do appreciate any ideas on getting this fixed.

does anyone find the 57sc a tad harder to hover than usual? I can hover my foamies all day long. My 74" Edge is also easy to hover. But i'm fighting the rudder movement in a hover with the 57sc. And it seems to want to pitch to the belly side even with the CG set to neutral or even slightly tail heavy.

Yes. This plane is definitely a little harder to hover than most other planes. It takes a little more effort for sure. I've found that it almost likes to be cocked backwards beyond vertical (jut a hair) to lock in.

The extras make you work for the hover. They make up for it with the ease of harriering and ke performance

I had a hard time hovering my balsa planes when I transitioned from foam. I found that foam was really easy to hover and my balsa planes were impossible to hover. I'd go back to my foam planes and it was super simple yet on my 48 inch 1.5 huck I would struggle to hover it for a few seconds. I was banging the sticks and having no luck. I pretty much gave up on it for a while and stuck to flying 3D on my larger foam planes. I then went back to my 1.5 huck and found my skills has improved enough to not bang the sticks on the balsa plane. I found that being relaxed was the difference. Easy smooth input on my larger balsa planes made it very easy to hover. More expo helps as well. Hang in there and learn blenders and higher energy moves for the larger balsa planes and leave hovering for the foamies till your relaxed flying the big balsa plane. It will come with more time.

The 70 velox and 89 slick hover almost as easy as a foamy.

It just takes some getting used to on the Extra. If you tried to hover something like an Edge or a Slick it would be much easier than the Extra.

I agree. I think it also makes up for it when it comes to rolling harriers. It seems like the Extra will do them in super slow motion and man oh man... nearly gives me a woody! TMI I know...
