  I put lexan Aileron plates on both ends of all four ailerons of 
my S1T. I have been flying with them installed for two years.
Roll rate is about 30* per second faster (270* to 300*) with 
no apparant adverse effects to 230mph (on more than a few 
 Where it really seems to make a difference is speeding up 
the first 1/4 of a roll,  and rolling at slower airspeeds.
