Problem with banana hobby F-4 Phantom tail

I got a new 64mm F-4 today - starmax from BH.

Everything is fine except the horizontal stab. It has a plastic spar joining the two which twists and allows for asymetric elevator. The servo is mounted such that the control arm is not in line with the horn that its attached to on the stab. No matter how i mount the servo arm it cannot get the correct throw to move the elevator properly.

Its really quite poor.

Does anybody own one of these and if so what was the fix.

That may work if the servo arm was flipped 180 degrees? Or maybe if the servo was flipped around in the fuselage? Looks like some tinkering is in order.
