I look forward to the rest of your build, it should be a good bird , the plastic folder hub may be a worry as i have had similar ones on my test stands break the pins out through the lugs at 8k plus.
Before you sign for it, I guess, inspect the parcel and reject it if you suspect something's up.

That's about it. After dry fitting the parts, I glue up what's needed and just maiden the plane this afternoon. There is no manual, so my C of G is a little off, tail heavy and had a bad landing.

Nylon screw at the wing ripped the foam out along with the washer. When that happens, the battery/cockpit hatch ripped the part where you slide it in.

Rudder got ripped off the hinge. So glue both ends of the hinge when you first receive it. It is actually a little loose.

Surprise, surprise, the wings survived the bad landing beautifully without a scratch.
