sir,
on the plan there are three diffrent pieces ie wing and 2 elevons.(image 1)but i joined those two elevons with the wing and have cut a single piece  on depron (image 2,3)instead of 3 pieces so that on the upper side of wing i dont need to join with tape.(image 4) I thought this method is better than to have three diffrent pieces and joining them by fiber glass tape.  Head Scratching

See desi jugaad carbon fibre pushrod.
Using Jhaadu ki teeli!  Clap

@suyash,
Move the pushrod to the OUTER holes of both servo horn and elevon control horn.
This will reduce the angle by which the control surface can move due to play in the linkage.

Next turn tx/rx on, zero the trim and subtrim.
Take arm off from servo and refit so it is at 90 degrees.
Loosen adjuster screw. Clamp elevon at neutral position. Tighten adjuster screw.

Do this for both sides. Then you should get equal up and down movement.
As well as equal movement on left and right side.
Ok?
(After this you can set unequal up/down, left/right differential etc, if reqd, at the tx)

How did you manage to get your cuts so clean? Is your depron laminated or the one like rcbazaar sells? My ft models never ended up so clean, any special tool? Great build!

@suyash,
Excellent. Looks beautiful, flies well.  Clap

Now add 10-15gms nose weight.
Change prop to 9x6 or 8x6 for more speed.
Reduce control throws and increase expo.

Well done. Congrats.
