Question
Topmodel CZ Adriana build - no pull string in wing

I'm starting to build the Adriana from Topmodel. Currently working on the wing servo install. There is no pull string to fish the wires through the ribs (wings are already monocoated). I was going to use a thin servo control rod to fish through the ribs, but the wire path doesn't exit straight at the wing base, so that won't work. Wondering if this is how they ship the ARF's, or are they missing?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Tie or glue a small piece of lead to a light string. Now you can move the wing in various directins to allow the lead to fall through the ribs from the servo opening to the wing root opening.

Got it. Drilled a small hole in fuse end of wing, was able to slide a thin control rod through. Taped monofilament to it and pulled it back. Worked good.
