Ailerons flaps don't line up on Radian Pro???

Just put together my Radian Pro and on my Right wind when the pushrods and clevis's are set correct the two don't line up. Has anyone else had this? Does it really badly effect flight? Will the foam bend if I bend the surfaces the other way over night? Or should I take it back to the hobby store and get a wing. Just such a pain in the

So this isn't a case of a line-up/set-up/programming issue, this is a warp, right? I'd take it back.

You can bend the foam if you heat it with hot water like from a tea kettle and hold it over the steam to heat and straighten. Don't use a heat gun, don't ask how I know this. Can you use the sub trim on your radio to get them even? I have to to do this with my radio all the time as transportation seems to warp the RP wings slightly.

If it's warp you're talking about in an aileron or flap, try taping both ends of the control surface flush and leaving it over night. Some have had success with that.
