I like this plane alot! I would buy it if hobbyking stocks it in their USA warehouse. There are few videos of it on youtube and it appears to be a very good flying plane. It looks like a convair 240 turboprop conversion.

I am having a build issue. It would appear that there is a discreptancy between the manual and the main gear. The directions show a mount to plug into, but there is none. Any advice would be appreaciated. See pics and 1 page PDF attached. There are no other parts included with this model as far as mounting the gear.
