I think on this plane that rear end of the canopy (or all) is just plastic. So glue on a piece of plywood, so there is something stronger to have a hole in for the pin.

I forget this one... usually it tucks in with a 'tab' at the front. That is usually fine - it can't get out.

I have to say I absolutely LOVE this plane I flew it today with a new 4000mAh 4s 45-90c lipo and it just loved it I got 206 Kph on GPS I had 3 flights got a little cocky on the last flight I did a low inverted pass and managed to rip the vertical fin off LOL no other damage
I will make a new one over the week and have it ready for next weekend
as far as I'm concern this is the best buy this year for me
I will order another one early next year and do a few mods to make it even better

quad,
this plane is a great flying plane UNTIL YOU ADD ALL THE EXTRA STUFF TO IT....
leave it stripped down, no gear or retracts, no flaps or rudder.... some people try to make this plane more than it is, then wonder why the performance isn't there anymore...
this plane is for flying, beating up, then flying some more, not a scale masters subject...
not bad for $90 but don't over do it, leave it light and fast and you'll be happy.mine has over 100 flights on it and still keeps up with other 70mm jets guys fly at my field..

That is exactly how mine is none of the extras as you say but it is much heavier than the standard setup
I have the 70mm alloy 10 blade fan 85amp esc twin elevator servos and 4s 4000mAh lipo
4mm carbon spar in the wing i don't know how heavy yours is but i would say mine is 500-600grams heavier

Just a little question about the elevator clevis coz I broke both today. I found out the 2mm won't fit but seems 3mm is too big. So are they actually 2.5mm and does 2.5mm clevis exist? Seem I can't find some replacement.

The stock control rod is 2mm diameter, but the thread part is 2.25mm.

You can try tapping a 2mm clevis to 2.25mm, or fill a 3mm clevis with epoxy then insert the rod thread, let it set, then twist counter-clockwise to release and make it adjustable. You could lightly coat or wipe the thread with petroleum jelly to help.

I'm STILL gluing parts together here!

Almost done though. Except for the epoxy join scars she's pretty darn straight still.

Let's hope your glueing skills are better than your soldering ;-)
