ELEVATOR. Outboard Counterweights

The outboard counterweights were installed on the elevators, per the manual. However, I reversed the arms. By doing this, the arms tend to curve toward the canard instead of down where they create more drag and are more exposed to the elements. One needs to be careful when installing the arms so that proper down movement of the elevators is not limited by the counterweight arm topping against the canard.
