Place your servo mounting plate on your bench and carefully lay out your radio gear. Make some alignment reference marks on the plate. The wooden mounting blocks are in the kit. Take care to watch the grain is running correctly. Note the "stepped" ruddervator servos, and the highth of the flap servo. you only have a mm to spare or so, so plan ahead. Some of the mounting blocks will go directly over the blind nut locations if you follow the dimensions in the assembly manual. You will also have to cut down the nylon wing mount screws to about 16 mm long, or else they will interfere with the mounting of the pallet. Make up the servo pushrods from 3-4 mm carbon tubing This didn't come in my kit package, so I had to order up a couple sticks to make pushrods about 63.5 cm and 61 cm for the tail surfaces. I finished out the push rods with 2/56 all thread and used Rocket city ball links for the tail.

Trial fit your servo tray and check closely for interfence from any side.
