Hey Matt, Glad to hear you got a kit! You’re going to enjoy this plane!!

All the hardware was up to the builder since this was a competition ship but the elevator internal setup was included. They did supply 12 aluminum dowel pins for locating the bellypan and a couple of aluminum tubing pieces for locating the wing, you still had to get a couple of mini camlocks(Prather) to attach the bellpan. Glass cloth and some aluminum shielding but that was about it.

The original ZigSaw Atlanta kits didn’t come with any hardware for flaps and spoilers. They recommended IM‘s premade hardware for both options back then. This hardware is pretty easy to duplicate if you decide to go with these options.

I personally would just go with dual aileron servos and use a flaperon mix in the radio to get the same results without adding more weight and a complicated setup.

Oh, by the way the wing dihedral is wrong in the manuals.
