Step 1: Preparing individual pieces

After you have received and unpacked your airplane the first step is to remove ll of the foil from the areas that have to be glued together, this can also bee done at the individual step is liked.

Step 2: Connecting electronic components

The next step is to connect all of your electronic components in the right way, this is showed in the first picture, the following detail the components in use, the second one shows how to connect up the components to the receiver. The individual components can be taken apart afterwards for easier assembly.

Step 3: Inserting Servos

In this step you should insert your servos into the airplanes rump, place them like shown in the picture beneath and screw them in.

Step 4: Preparing servo rudders for placement on Servos

After you have inserted the servos you will have to prepare the servo rudders since not all parts of them are necessary, clip them of with plyers as is shown in the pictures.

Step 5: Insert Torsion screws into the flaps

The torsion screws of the set have to be inserted into the movable bits between the balsa planes in order for them to bend on their own into one direction.

Step 6: Adding the pin to the left wing

The pin is the most important part of the plane and has to be fitted into the carbon fibre reinforced ear of the left hand side of the wing. The pin has to be inserted at an angle of approximately 3 degrees of the parallel line of the body slanting towards the front of the airplane. This can be done by drilling holes in the appropriate places and then connecting them with files. The pin is then placed in the created hole and fixed into position with a two component epoxy glue.
Great job man it's really a new type of RC plane, and i really appreciate you for this great idea thanks for sharing.

I was baffled as to why the pin in the left wing was so important . . . but now I know #;¬)
