How can we stop winter?
Joined Sep 2005
I like to start every ARF build by running over all the covering with my heat gun and/or iron before I get to the build. I have to say I had very little work to do this round, great job at the factory!
After a little cosmetic wrinkle removal, I am going to take my trusty hot-knife and remove the covering from areas shown in the assembly manual.

A little heat...
Wing spar tube hole and wing pin holes.
Remove the covering around the elevator servo tray on the -LEFT- side of the fuse. (Remember in aviation, left and right are taken from the pilots seated perspective!) And remove the covering from around the horizontal stab slots.
Dont forget the anti-rotation pin hole located about 7" aft of the wing tube hole.
Remove a square just behind the wing. (or two squares if you want added cooling)
Remove the covering from the LEFT elevator to allow for installation of the elevator control horn. -Do the same for the rudder- (not pictured)
Covering removed from the wing(s) aileron servo tray and control horn slot.
