moutain models dl50 trim problem

just maidened my dl50 today. trimmed it out so that my launches and
normal flying were nice and straight. probally getting 80-90 ft launches. problem... there is about 1/2 inch of right rudder to get it to fly this way. is there something i need to do so that my rudder is straight for flying? any help would be appreciated. thanks

hey first post? let me be the first to say welcome to to the forums! try measuring the distance from the TE wingtip to the tip of the elevator and make sure its the same on both sides. is the vert stab aligned with the wing? how does it fly when you just hand launch it verses a discus? im sure you can figure out your problem here, the guys here are a great help.

You may also have a warped wing. See if you can sight the wings from about 3-5' in front of the plane. You can fix a warp by GENTLY heating the wing and holding a twist. Go very slowly, only doing a little at a time.
