Flew of the final 2 hours of test time today aileron stiffness was caused by the new nyloc bearing on the torque tube was to tight loosened the tension ailerons are smoother now.

Harry,

Looks like most of your equipment and empty weight are a close match to mine. The mods did move my CG back a little, though, which hurt it.

Good luck and be safe.
