Afraid - biggest things are making sure the control horns are well glued, linkages aren't binding, surfaces are centered, the fan uni is glued in correctly and the CG is right.

In other words, treat it as though you were building from scratch. I've seen control horns let go, servos jam, fan units slip and rub through motor wires... the works. Nothing surprises me, but if you treat it like a scratch-build then you can help remedy the factory fault pretty easily.

And yes, I would steer clear of the micro EDF's for a while. Perhaps try a pusher-jet foam build to get used to the characteristics of an EDF. Search on rcfoamfighters.com and try your hand at the FF-22 or FF-15, both attractive builds that fly well and will give you a decent idea on how an EDF flies, all without actually ponying up and buying an EDF.
