don't overlook problem #2.5
I had a slight rubbing that I thought was problem #2 as well. I painted the hex tubes white and there even was a spot where some paint was removed. Turns out that was during construction and once the final rigging was done it no longer rubbed. Alas I still had a rubbing sound when full aft and moving ailerons to full deflection on both sides. The issue was a very slight rubbing of the hex tube on the forward edge of the slots in the tunnel sides. It would only happen full aft and almost full aileron deflection. This is an impossibility with me in the pilots seat due to my inbuilt roll limiting devices (legs). Never the less I laid uncomfortably in the plane for an hour+ with a file and carefully widened the slots some at the contact point on the tunnel sides.

Reason: change tunnel cover to tunnel sides
