Zafiro 3D:short building thread

Hi
I recently decided to trade my Fliton extra330 with somthing more agile and purchesd a Zafiro 3d kit from CAmodel argentina
last week i finished it and here are the pics
btw:i didnt took pics at the start so some are from the manuel
the kit comes with a fiberglass fuselage and foam core balsa sheeted wings elevator and rudder,very very light and well finished
the ailerons and elevators lines are marked with a pen on the balsa

Re: Zafiro 3D:short building thread

cutting the control surfaces was realy easy,i went for a little bigger elevator than what was marked since i planed to fit this airplane with Hightec 5645 and it is no problem for this servo to "eat" any size of control surface for this size of model

Re: Zafiro 3D:short building thread

I have installed a Saito 125 on it
OK as i promissed:short
after cutting the control surfaces i installed robart HD hings,seven for each aileron and four for the elevator halfs and rudder
i renforced the joint of the two elevator halfs with a carbon-balsa-carbon beam that i made and opend the servo hols in the wing

ok
for cooling i opened in the fuselage 4 intake hols in the front one for the main front bearing of the motor on the top and big hols for cooling the engine block.
for exit hols i made a leaf pattern on sticky tape and dremeld it.
the servo trays that come beautifully laser cutted in the kit i glued to a one layer of carbon plate that i made
