get some radio gear in

Cut out the hole for the servo , if you use hot glue to glue the servo in place it is easily removed once you have crashed

using an old credit card cut out a set of horns, cut a slit about a millimeter wide into the depron and test fit the horn. Once you are happy that you can get a hole into the horn that is perpendicular to the hinge line, fill the slit with hot glue and stick the horn in.
I use some stainless steel welding wire for the pushrods (but i have heard paper clips will also do), use a lighter to heat up the end of the wire and push it thru the horn trying your best to keep in line with the hinge line.
BBQ skewers are the way forward for buget 'rods'


Mount the motor, wich i havnt shown as there are a million ways of mounting various motors , add the esc and reciever and away you go

Some paint to add a bit of character
