Just go slow. Stock servos pop out with a lil wiggle. You can peel back the lettering slowly. The channel for the servo wire you will have to make bigger for the turn right at the servo hole. Mine went well, I taped the ext. cord together so they dont pull apart.
My job is not too clean but I had to change a busted servo.

Just got mine today some bolts are missing so I won't be able to fly it tomorrow. 1 wing bolt, tail feather bolt, and spinner bolt. Anyone tried 5s or 6s lipo yet? No surprise about the crappy servos I already have some mini JR and a standard Sanwaon stand by when they go bye bye. Hopefully the motor and ESC will be fine. I do have an SK 42-50 if needed.

Faster shipping than I'd have thought

Ordered mine on 2/5 and received it on 2/11 - six days from Hong Kong to Chicago by the Postal Service choice (not EMS). Pretty good I'd say. Cardboard side of box had a 3" hole in it, but contents seem to be in order.

I ordered the orange one and got the orange one (am I the first?). Even seems to have all screws and bolts. So far so good.

you are the lucky one LOL I ordered on 2/2 and paid EMS and it still hasn't been shipped, if I dont have to order from them (if there is no where in the USA that has the planes i want) then I guess I will have to order from them but as far as it goes i will never again order from them b*it if you ask me... good luck with yours

Probably EMS mistake

I originally said that the plane was shipped by postal service - which is how I ordered and paid for it (and a postman delivered it). But I just noticed a label on the box that says EMS. Maybe HobbyKing made a mistake in my favor. I can't imagine the slower shipping method taking only six days.

I sure didn't mean to stir up any bad feelings among RCGroups people.

oh man that sucks so bad. Let me guess it was shipped from hobbyking right. I received a micro slick 360 from them and it was very damaged on arrival. I kicked up a stink and they sent me replacement parts.....but heres the kicker the replacement parts where also damaged.

You cant expect top service from a bunch a monkeys and morons.
