About to commence a Cloud Models PB 'Bullet' build.
This has strip ailerons.
My impression, rightly or wrongly(?), is that 'tip/outboard' ailerons are more effective, giving crisper and more precise rolls. (Maybe it's just my poor flying!)
What thoughts, outboard ailerons, or full span strips as per original and the kit?
A supplementary, if I may.
If I fit outboard ailerons, thus allowing the inboard portion of the wing to be 'flapped', would it significantly weaken the foam veneered wing in cutting a thin slot for the servo leads? (I would probably infill with a balsa cap in any case).
Thanks in anticipation and for any hints 'n tips on the build, (for electric power), appreciated.

I would leave them as they should be....in the good old days of the original "bullet" it was a goodin for displaying its tip stall if you stopped it from flying......I had a one that done the best flat spin I've ever seen from a fair height....

Leave as is, the Bullet is a cracking aerobatic model. The designer got it right

Split the aileron to outboard/inboard sections, then mix the inner to be switchable as ailerons or as flaps and as spoilers.
