Flyzone Select Scale Super Cub - bent rudder

Just bought a flyzone super cub and I think there may be an issue with my rudder. Looks like it came a with a slight bend at the top. See the pics below...


Any suggestions on how to straighten this out? On my test flight, I tried to compensate with trim, but it still wanted to pull to one side.

All ideas welcomed and very much appreciated.

Thanks!

Minor! Fly it and when you crash you may straighten it!
Seriously it shouldn't cause any problem with that model.
HOT water on a rag can straighten it.

You're right! I got it up, trimmed it and this baby flew great! Now I just need to figure out how to keep her from flipping over when I land... I do a little flare and touch the wheels to the grass as gently as I can, but she wants to tip over

Bigger wheels my help some. Just depends on how tall the grass is on your field.

really small world!!!

I helped a buddy put together his Flyzone. I told him at the time that the wheels were for hard surface landings only. ROG would flip over every time. It does.

I put 2 1/4 foam tires on my SC. Still flips over must days.

I fly at a grass field. Only mowed one a week. Thursday, Friday, Saturday it is great. Not so the rest of the week.

Best scenereo is TO and L on hard surface. FLY over grass.
