Nobody needed the 3dhs arms they just used the hitec long arms correct? Any tips before I start this?
Correct, no need for the longer arms. My only tip is to let the glue dry on the CA hinges. We're all used to CA hinges in balsa drying in like 2 seconds. I had to leave mine sit for about 15 minutes using medium non-foam safe CA.

ok, I had *thought that it would intermittently drop a wing real quick every once in a while, not a constant roll you have always correct.

I'm looking into this.

I don't think anyone used the 3dhs arms. In fact on the rudder I used the second most inner hole @ 140 or so EPA. But I would like a few degrees more on my elev, but I think it would be perfect the way it is if I had the 72 in there instead of the 103.

Oh and it's a pretty quick build. No wiping up excess CA drips on this one!

The thick CA dried really quick I should have put it in first, so now I just put more thick CA around it and I am going to cut that tip off. oh well.

Hmm, I used welders on my landing gear, figured it would be stronger.

I used 30 min epoxy - brushed it on the front and back of the landing gear structure. To access the back of the landing gear structure, I cut a hole in the EPP from the top (battery tray). If you're neat about it, you wouldn't know there was a hole there after you reseal the hole. I didn't care so much about being neat.

Over 24 hrs because I had to wait for the PU glue to dry.

I have lots of epo and eps foam planes but this is my first epp. Cant say i am a big fan of this type of foam. Is there some benefit to epp? Seems to flexible to me.
