Elevons pointing the wrong way.

Question

Hi

For some reason the some of the elevons on my plane are pointing the wrong way when I try to pitch up or down. As shown in the picture the two on my tail fin point down and the outer one on my main wing points down but the two inner ones on my main wing point up.

I've tried deleting them and putting new ones on, I've tried deleting them and copying the ones on the tail fin, I've tried setting the deploy direction to inverted. None of that seems to fix them. What am I missing in trying to make them work right.

The problem elevons are "elevon 5"'s in case that might affect anything.

Any other comments on the plane are welcome. It flies like a brick.

Hi @Tarsirrus, have you tried right clicking on them in the SPH and setting their control authority to -100 ?

Control surfaces in KSP check their position relative to the CoM, so they can invert as fuel is consumed, so try moving them a little as well.

Thanks that did it. Not sure about why though, the CoM is in front of all them.

I guess my picture is not showing up as I'm still new right?

Actually images can't be attached directly here, try using imgur, you don't need an account, view the image there to get the full url and paste that here.
