Once the glue dried, I realized the “joining” of the ailerons of both high and low wing. To do this, I used a 0.8 mm carbon rod between the 2 ailerons and I used a piece of heat shrink tubing to fix it. It is of course necessary to ensure that the flap of the 2 wings are well neutral.

Then I heated the thermo sheath. Don’t forget to put an aluminum foil to avoid melting the epp. Yes, it happens, it even happened to me on this one, but nothing serious.
