Thanks Paul and Cody. That is what I have always thought (a weight) but now knowing it is for flutter that helps explain why it is fairly light as not much weight would be needed for that.

Yes, it's a counter weight to balance the elevators to prevent flutter (hopefully!).
I’ve always assumed that the circled item is a weight of some kind connected to the elevator control.
While we continue to work on the avionics , and locate a spot to mount a servo up front, I realize there’s hardly any weight to these at all. I’ve also noticed in quite a few photos posted by this group that others don’t seem to have this mysterious object.
Any ideas on what the circle item could be if not a weight?
