Need Help straightening vert stab on Electrifly L-39...

Anyone have any suggestions on straightening the vertical stab fin on an "Aerocell" Electrifly L-39.

Mine was bent straight out of the box.

I was thinking of a heat gun but it's already glued to the plane after I tried straightening it by hand and gluing to the slotted fitting. Unfortunately the top half is still slightly but noticbly bent.

Is it common for the stabs to be slightly bent out of the box? This is my fist time with an "Aerocell" kit.

Any Tips or Tricks that can be suggested would be greatly apreciated.

Thanks in Advance!

Mine was bent too. Just tweak it with your hand and then keep it pressed down with a phone book.

Mine was bent out of the box as well. I bent it by hand as much as I could, after heating up with a blow dryer.

It made a little difference, but it was still noticably (at least to me), off center. I flew it like this for many flights and I enjoyed the heck out of it!
