I’ve learned a ton from this group. One consistent theme sticks out all the time from those with great experience: keep it simple and don’t fix what’s not broken.

Just follow the plans. A mid span hinge would serve what purpose? The ailerons are simple, best to keep them that way. They are a low maintenance item and as far as my experience goes, don't need fixing.

Flipped the wing upright today to install the aileron slots. Any
different ideas on mounting the ailerons?
How is the best way to make an aileron to fuselage fairing? I am setting
mine up a bit different than plans. I want the ailerons easily removable
to service bushings. I also have a hinge point mid aileron, and am
thinking of installing fuselage mounted phenolic along with the inner
phenolic. For the fuselage hinge point I would like to drill it out
to 1 inch. Slide the 5/8 tubing mounted in the aileron into the
phenolic and then slide a one inch outside diameter bushing with 5/8
inside into the phenolic and pop rivet it in place. The inner
bellcrank has a washer on it that will push against the inner phenolic
to hold the aileron out. Any ideas and critisism is welcome along with
Take care------------- Chris
