I started building last night. Looks straight forward for the most part, but the boom servo mounts have me scratching my head a little bit. Not sure why they're supposed to move freely along the boom as the manual seems to state.
After much internal debate I have decided to use a 3536C 1050 motor, as I don't think the little 2217 I got for it will be enough for some of the things I envision doing with this plane, particularly when it comes to short take offs / climbs.
Also I am thinking I will use a metal gear servo for the elevator.
I think they want the servo mounts loose so you can move them to help balance the planes CG after you decide where everything is going I am sure you have to glue them in place. The tail boom is 16 mm in diameter which is the same as the T-Rex 500 tail boom. I am going to use T-Rex 500 tail servo mounts which have screws and clamp to the boom and you can slide them anywhere on the boom and lock them in place.
