Things I like about the kit;
good hardware set, clevis, threaded rod, etc. all metric though.
all servo covers, bellcrank cover are beautifully fitted
stabilator bellcrank (with clevis) already installed in tail
rudder control horn (with clevis) already installed.
all control horns are epoxied into ailerons and flaps.
wing is opened up for linkage from servo boxes to top driven aileron/flap control horns.
canopy already has a wire clip epoxied inside to hold canopy on.

something I would like too;
A factory epoxied motor mount, or at least a built -up lip, to hold a motor mount in place. Fuselage is just cut off at front.
Hi guys
This will be my first mouldy that I have fitted out, and one of the things that is mystifying me is the rear to servo mount.
Do you just cut a slot in the rear end of the mount box for the control rods, or face the servo's inwards with the arms facing into the fuselarge, sorry for my ignorance but this is so new to me.
