Mine arrived this afternoon, but I had to go out to mow our grass runway so I didn't have time to give the kit a good going-over beforehand. A couple of points which were obvious in the quick look I took were ...

Correct, squeeker - the instructions spend several pages dealing with safety and pre-flight issues (which, we know is important of course) but there's absolutely no information included which deals with wiring to the receiver.

The assembly manual doesn't discuss fitting the linkages between servos and control horns and although someone with experience will work it out, it's probably going to cause some consternation for a complete newb.

Overall, the build quality looks as good as has been reported - very slick surface finish and detailing, general assembly and parts look good. The motor is a "GC 3536 - 850 kV" which sounds about right, but I've not yet put the prop on and fired it up with the Wattmeter included.

Looks good ... more details to follow as I get time tomorrow to put it all together and run it up with a few tests.
