Replaced Aileron Hinge Bracket Washers

When I had finished the ailerons a few weeks ago, I noticed that the bolts holding the aileron brackets to the ailerons didn't have very many threads showing once the washer and nut was installed. The easy solution here was to use think "L" washers instead of the thicker standard washer. If you use a longer bolt here you then have to use additional washers as the grip length on the next size bolt doubles.

Before the switch on the left, after (with the thin washer) on the right. You can clearly see that not many threads are showing on the bolt on the left.
