A little about this airplane. It is loaded. All hinging except for the rudder is done. Nice double truss fiberglass control horns, more about those later. Titanium links!!! Nice quality ball links. Carbon wing and stab tubes. Carbon main and tail landing gear and a carbon spinner,,,,included! The pull-pull wire is nice vinyl coated stuff. One of the best ARFs I have ever assembled!

Photo of the root rib of a stab.
Notice the notch cut out for the servo wire.

Lots of good hardware. Nice anodized aluminum servo arms are included, these would work well with the Uni Hub,,,, but I did not have any Uni hubs around so I used SWB servo arms.

Hardpoints are pre slotted. Just cut away the Ultracoat with a sharp #11 blade.

The fiberglass arm in this prototype needed to be trimmed, they were slightly long. Also some 120 grit sandpaper was used to scuff the bonding surfaces.

Assemble two arms with the supplied hardware and ball link, and glue into the hardpoints with some 30 minute epoxy.

Same goes for the rudder, dry fit everything first. Measure and mark before epoxying in place.
