Its not easy but I was able to put a 1/4" rotary file bit in a 90 deg angle grinder and slowly grind away at it. Sounds really dangerous but it wasnt to bad just dont give the grinder full gas and it will work.

Default Technique from E's site

Here's a link that shows how another builder did this. Not sure it's any easier. I'm still several weeks away from this step.

so why should I bother filing it down. I understand maximizing the aft angle for landing, but do I care how much forward the angle is? How often am I going to push the stick full forward? Just curious. I am sure that someone is going to flame me for this post.
