Thanks for all the info, its seems the loose wing was the problem, a couple of flights its good then the elastics loosen up and the wing lifts enough. more elastics seem to work for now....
Thanks again..

Nice diagnosis Ed!

When cold weather flying do not be tempted to try and re-use the bands. Chuck them out.

The rubber is affected by the cold, especially below freezing. The colder it is, the more bands I use.

3-4$ at a Staples/etc. gets you a nice big bag of #64s...

Be careful tightening wing bolts too. Nylon gets brittle below freezing.

Take care,
Have fun,

Flying Problems

Does this A/C have aerodynamic balance on the control surfaces? Some times these will overpower the ny-rod. To stiffen the ny-rod we use to get a bicycle spoke that would fit inside the inner tube, the bicycle shop would double the length of the thread. Leave the rod end 2 to 4 inches long, slide it in the inner tube and thread it in three or four threads, leaving enough thread s to attach your clevis. You could also go to a double cable system like the bigger A/C do.
