Putting two parts at an angle to each other, symmetrically

Hi everyone,

 

 

There's something that I can't figure out how to do.

 

Check out the following screenshot. I have 10 copies of the same parts, in 5 pairs. As you can see, I'm trying to make each pair be at an angle to the pair next to it. I've created the angle mates successfully, but I have a problem: The parts aren't symmetrical to each other. I'm trying to make them trace something like a quarter circle, but as you can see the parts are in some places colliding with each other, and in other places just not symmetrical.

 

What can I do? I tried setting up a symmetry mate, but that requires a plane, and while I've created planes before, I don't know how to create a plane that would be in the dead center between each pair of buttons. (If creating a plane is even the answer here.)

 

Any idea what to do?

 

 

Thanks,

Ram.
