My slingshot has the aileron balance tubes in place. I have the weights that go inside to neutralize control. There are no holes in either to secure the weights. The drawings show a bolt thru set up. …. Are you using these? And if so, how are the weights secured in the tubes?
Thanks

Disconnect your aileron pushrods from the ailerons, and slide the weights back and forth in the tubes until the ailerons balance level. Drill a hole through the tube/weights and stick an AN3 bolt through it. Do it vertical so it won't foul the wingtip.
Like a lot of other things in aviation, it turns out to be pretty simple, but back when I built my MKIII, I didn't know either.
And w/o the balance weights, my ailerons would start to flutter at 88 mph. Good mod.
