Argument:  Peter's aileron mod is just the most recent in a string of mods that Peter has done to both the Melmoth and Melmoth2.  The goal was to lighten the aileron hinge moments.  He chose to do so by moving the hinge line in the aileron, which required building a new aileron and aileron drive mechanism.  It is a great example of Peter's continued interest in all parts of the process.  His website covers the aero and structural work done on this mod, the fabrication, and eventual flight test, this mod is multi-disciplinary example of aviation curiosity.
