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

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.
