Ok, starting !

I begin with the landing gear... the easiest part

The landing gear is made in black painted alluminium, fixed with 3 allen screws on the airframe.

First picture show the parts contained on the bag :

The wheel support (sorry for my english translation) is fixed on the LG only partially, first thing to do is to mount the wheel. I've added two washers, because i don't like a direct contact between the wheel and the support axle, the picture show what i mean :

Try to fix the wheel stop collar with the screw in the up direction, you may need to adjust it later.
The wheel should spin freely, but without much "play".

Next step... put the wheel cover.

To tighten the nut, simply put a small screwdriver on the small hole, on one side of the wheel axle.
It is not necessary to align perfectly the cover now, you can do it later
