Brief Description:  Added "spades" to help with aileron forces

Yea! No, these aren't for aerobatics! The control forces on the ailerons due to being full span are obnoxiously high compared to the elevator... Not so much that you can't control it of course, but I like the feel of things to be a bit more balanced, so I added them. Works great.

I had some scrap 4130 streamlined tubing that I cut up and welded to plates. The "wings" themselves are .090 aluminum (6061-T6), bent on the edges to help maintain the shape. The other end bolts to the outboard end of the ailerons.
