Jets have manuals. Swists and all these other planes have nothing. I guess when you were born you had all the f5d knowledge automatically downloaded into your brain

Well considering this is a H.P forum....
You don't drive 24hr Le Manns cars before you drive a mini do you...
I think the saying is 'use your initiative'...

This is a forum. People have questions. If you want to reply with an answer that's cool , if not keep your insults to yourself.

Swist is described as a Carbon/Kevlar layup on SUSA, I used the fins on my X Plane just because I didn't want to use straws to keep the antenna's away from the fuse.

Half the fun of these planes is building them ( for me the mind is a dangerous place, staying constructive keeps me sane). I spent weeks upon weeks reading the swist build thread ( till I was crosseyed) and I am glad I did, thread tools attachments in all threads were golden thanx to guy s like lenny, jacko, voodoo, Yuri and so many more for their documentation of these hp builds.

I guess what I was trying to say is there's a hundred ways to skin a cat and yes most of these planes don't come with manuals but if you're patient and persistent you will find the answers in these build threads don't be afraid to p.m. Me if you have any questions.

Ok, well after a couple nights of cooling I am back with an update. I will do a full build with pictures and descriptions as to why I built it the way I did. I will have everything I need to build this beast by friday and I cant wait to really start it. I thank everyone who helped along the way.
