First things first:

-Throw the instructions away, but read them first for a few good laughs!
-Pull the motors out, throw them away.
-Remove all linkages from servos to control surfaces.
-Remove the panels on the bottom of the wings to access the servos.
-Pull the servos out, throw them away.
-Tug (very lightly!) on ALL the control surfaces, and they come out!
-Remove all the hinges and replace them with CA hinges.
-Stick your hand inside the fuselage and push on the front window to pop it out (for easy accessibility during building)
-Pull the two tailbooms apart carefully and take the stabilizer out so you can epoxy it back in. I don't trust the glue holding it in.

Okay, now the plane is gutted out and ready for modifications...
