I have their 20cc J3 Cub and the ailerons are also like this new design. Looks good, but I hate how it functions. Using Hitec D485 servos, the linkage is on the farthest hole out on the servo horn, just so the rod does not bind against wood. The ailerons would not center at all, and all my early flights I was fighting the roll. I just couldn't fly level. I changed to Hitec 5645 servos and it is better but still not perfect. I think by going with such a small control horn on the surface and the larger horn on the servo, there is not enough leverage to bring the aileron back to center from each direction. Hopefully others have better luck. I really want to buy their new FW190, but the design is the same.

That's also a formula for surface flutter. The geometry is exactly opposite what it should be. It is purely a cosmetic choice.
