Above is a better view of the 30% offset aileron hinge. 

This has a very nice CNC machine finish with a bearing joint (we call them Heim Joints in car racing) for the aileron mount.  There is a bolt sitting on this hinge which detracts from the picture.  This is a square wing tip on an S1S aircraft.
