I have to get building on my Archer. It looks like a simple build. I have to detail the airplane once its built.

Dude, you are confused. There is Nothing to build. This is a foamy, not an actual kit. You screw on the horz. stab and go fly! 10 minutes and your done.

Thanks guys
Its just fun to do , when you dont spend hundreds of hours building a kit , just detailing a foamy is fun to do.

One day I will take the time and build a kit or modify a foamy, but right now I don't have the tools, the patience, or the space. Maybe I should look into detailing.

Decided to do a little wire cleanup in the fuselage.
Just cut a couple slots in the foam and inserted the wires and covered with white tape

I know the diffence between a kit and a ARF definitely not confused. Its a easy assembling foamy. Not sure how I quoted you sj3cub on the thread. Must have been a computer problem somehow.

I hope you like the Cherokee from Parkzone.

I use the same ones on all my planes. They seem easier to pull apart than the blue EC3 connectors and the pins do not pull out which was an issue on some of my EC3 connectors.(the pins are held in by compression)
Another bonus is that they are cheaper and many of the inexpensive HobbyKing batteries are sold with that connector already on them.

That's why I swapped because I was tired of connections getting tight when I was flying or barely going together at all, and the extra savings is nice on buying connectors.
