Following a 'brick-out' operation the little SE5a is airworthy again after a bit of a long lay-off. Enjoy the spectacle and tell me what you think of the music lol. Do consider subscribing if you enjoy RC fun times ... it's Free you know?

Bit of advice please. I set mine up with very minimal dihedral (as per the jig) and all it wanted to do was continually roll in one direction. Jon at Microaces suggested re-rigging it with more dihedral.
Any chance of a prop on view of yours = your experience of getting it fully set up?

Here's my front view, I think you'll find the dihedral is the same as yours. It was the first MA model I'd built and the wings were twisted all over the place, once I'd corrected this things improved dramatically.
I was able to release the strut mountings using lighter fluid (it dissolves Uhu Por) where necessary and re-position the wings so they were at least the same both sides. You have to fiddle with the rigging a little although I didn't have to slacken it off at all.
The model has had a lot of abuse and, as you can see from the picture the top wing isn't exactly flat although it's pretty equally misalinged.
Can you add a similar picture of yours?
Jon's advice would also work as long as the rigging could be re-adjusted and the wings are set up correctly.
