Hi amzimmy,

I just purchased one from Skip Miller here in the US. I really like the lines of the plane and the build quality is great. Not quite like my Superior, but not much difference at all.

I only got it about two weeks ago and am close to finishing the build. The one area where I think I might have learned something not so obvious in the build is the location of the fuselage servos.

Side by side, a JR 3241 and JR 368 (rudder) fit just fine with short horns on them. I still need to measure, but I think that this length arm is not enough to produce enough throw (even at 150% in my JR 9303) on the elevator. Rudder is fine. A longer arm will rub on the nose cone. On Skip's page, he shows an offset to the servos and longer arms. I will post again when I measure, but be sure you keep an eye on this one.

I have not done the set up but plan to use the throws shown on Jiri's page as a starter.

I plan to maiden the plane this weekend. Good luck with yours.

Sean
