Who knows... Worst case we end up at the bar drinking rum and eating hamburgers like at belmont.

That's still better than work!

Might also be worth checking wand length and position when the flap is at neutral. The quick answer is to say to shorten your control rod, but that will affect your wand positioning also.

Start with your wand in the position you want it to be in when you are flying level, then adjust your control length to make sure the flap is neutral at this point. From there check your range to flap on and off, you may find the angular alignment of the wand to control arm may also need adjustment.

It's a bit of a process but the results pay off.

Also I don't sail a Mach 2 so when you say you have rudder pin all the way forward does that increase or decrease rudder AoA? Your other problem may be not enough rudder lift.
