And what about wing and stab incidences? Some pictures of the ailerons linkages and struts would be appreciated....

I reactivated it with enlarged fin and now it flies very nice. Does any kind of aerobatics and excellent harrier and reasonable hover. Knife edge is a bit difficult, it tends to roll to level.
New fin shape is not as stylish as the original, but directional stability is much improved. Ailerons are driven by one servo and connected with CF rods and heat shrink tube. Wings, stab and downthrust are 0, sidethrust 2 - 3.
