That's about the size of it....

Fig 27 of the build manual shows that the aileron servo leads should extend about 25mm beyond the join face of the wings. The small piece of snake fitted over the leads in Fig 28 acts as a fold point for the leads during assembly.

During assembly the connector from the aileron servo is plugged into the connector of the servo extension that is fixed to the fuselage in Figs 10 and 11. When the wing is then pushed into the fuselage the wire folds neatly over the piece of snake and forms a small loop.

Quite a neat solution actually.

Thank you for explaining what I should have been able to see for myself but for some reason it didn't seem clear to me. I was hoping the system would be similar to the Cularis which was rather elegant in comparison to the way Multiplex designed the EZ 2's wing servo hook up. It works to be sure but I think they could improve on it.

Again thanks for your help.
Ed

$60 street price is my target price, should get there soon enough, I don't anticipate this thing will sell too briskly at the current "fixed price of $95" especially with so much reasonably priced competition. HP just had a leftover sale of their warehouse clearance sale, which included some other MPX poor sellers xeno and Merlin. they still have a bunch, just can't get rid of those things even at $50.

BTW, I did score a BNIB and complete RTF version Easy Star I for $40 at the warehouse sale!

From the instruction manual:

Quote:
35. Installing the wings

Slide the wing joiner 50 into one of the wing panels as shown in the illustration, then fit the joiner through the fuselage. Before the wing makes contact with the fuselage, connect the aileron servo lead to the extension lead already installed in the fuselage. Connect the plug and socket, then push the wing fully into place; the cable will now form itself into a loop in the space designed for it. Fit the other wing panel onto the joiner, and connect the aileron servo lead to the extension lead already installed in the fuselage, as described previously.
Fig. 40 + 41
There is no "auto hook up", but with only two aileron servos, it is really no big deal to connect them.

I use 12 AWG for all extensions between ESC and battery for ,3S and 4S applications, I use 10 AWG for the real powerful stuff, like 90mm EDF running 6S and more cells. I use 16 AWG for low current 2S stuff but always stick to good quality silicone wire.

14 gauge silicone wire....but the purest would suggest extending the esc to motor wires instead.
At this level extending the esc to battery wires is fine.

Thanks for the information Verid. As I sit here tonight, cool, refreshing beverage in hand, watching your video over and over, I would just like for you to know that you have contributed greatly to my contentment and appreciation of this wonderful gift that we call life! It is amazing that I can sit here tonight in the state of Kentucky, in the United States of America and sincerely enjoy the fields of Poland and the joy of RC flight. Thank you for sharing my friend.
