David's aileron counter balance
I also included a scan of the layout I did on my wing drawing
to size and locate the mass balance. Be sure to allow for the wing taper.
This needs to be accurate as there is just enough room for the weight to move.
I just remembered that the aluminum plate doesn't extend to the end of the lead
weight. I made a mold and poured the lead around the end of the aluminum,
then drilled holes and installed the bolts. I think that light colored
area on the front of the aileron spar above the plate is just a reflection.
