Section: 11
Hours: 4

Today I set the hard stops for the elevators. I used the digital level app on my iPhone and measured the max elevator up movement and it came out to 26 degrees. The manual calls out 30. To add more you have to file away the stop at the back of the fuselage.
 I used a variety of files and the dremel to grind away the stop limits.
Here is the final result for 30 degrees of up. Both control arms are in solid contact with the stop at 30 degrees of up elevator.
 I only had to file a little to get the required 25 degrees of down throw. However, it was much more difficult to file the inside stop due to the tight space.
