Millennium RC slow stick X!

I volunteered to build a new version of Millennium RC's redesigned slow stick X kit for a friend. I was curious as to how this compared to the original one I built. (which Just happened to be my first build)
So, here goes the log.


FYI. in case you are interested, here is the website for more info on the SSX and the other great planes they have...

I unpacked the box, and it appears that Bryan has purchased the complete kit which includes x-gear, and the x- fuse kit that is also sold by millennium.

Step 1 is easy, glue 2 pieces together.
Step 2 is easy, but I screwed it up. You are supposed to glue 2 pieses together in a "mirror image" and even though I checked the fit and the "mirror image 3 times, I still messed up and glued the pieces in wrong

No problem for a little debonder and some time, but I should have checked 4 times I guess...


More coming in a bit..

I had already glued them together and found out that I had glued SC-2a in correctly in one, and incorrectly in the other. I think that was what made me think it was in the right way. I had it coming out the wrong side of W2.
I got it fixed though.

I don't think I will ever be able to build something without messing something up

one Note: in step 5 TE-C pieces should have the text side facing the leading edge. This makes the parts fit better. Laser cut parts are a little tight and they go together easier this way.
