After trying out a 701 with center stick I realized that my 701 (with dual control sticks) was lacking in aileron deflection due to the fact that my legs would interfere with the stick left-right movement.
The aileron deflection was minimal so I lenghtened the lower arm in the bicycle-like aileron control and pushed the control rods outward (new holes). It restored full control authority to my ailerons.
