I very well could be wrong but I think in the manual they are indicating that it's 87mm back from the leading edge and 150mm out from the fuselage.

And on to the next problem: 30" of unsupported elevator and rudder push rod. The wire was even smaller than the 2-56 wire. The threads on the included push rods for the tail plane was smaller than the included swivel link connectors.



I think my solution will be to use a 5/16" dowel for the push rod.

you could try a small carbon fiber tube with z-bent wires glued into the ends

Yeah but I have a bunch of these 5/16" arrows laying around. These were crappy arrows but they'll be great for push rods, I'm glad I kept them.

Not much room to screw down the servos. I got the pilot holes drilled and hardened but I keep stripping the heads of the included phillips servos mounting screws.



I got a pack of 100 of these from RTL Fasteners so I can use a ball driver or at least the short end of an allen wrench. In hindsight, they were even cheaper from Micro Fasteners.



I'm going to run to the local hobby shop to see if they have any so I don't have to wait a week just to mount my servos. If they do, I'll have the extra for the next build.

Hope the manufactures catch the size and fit problem with there next batch, those horns are huge!! What engine is that, I noticed the old style pressure nipple on the bottom and have seen it there on a couple different makes.

That's an ASP .65. I'm not sure how old it is but there's very little info online. I bought it off of RCU, I hope it runs lol.

I use the screws extensively. For some reason, I counted them on my Cessna Airmaster. That model contains 84 !

Needless to say, I buy them in lots of 500.

I thought the setup for glow fuel was a black stopper and clear tube. This one seems to have a brown stopper and yellow tubing. I thought the yellow was for gas. The manual only gave instruction for glow.

Hmmmmm,they do make yellow glow fuel line,but that brown stopper? I special ordered a stopper for my gasser tank,and it was brown. Like you say,all stoppers I have seen for glow are black
Tygon line for gas is also a little stiffer. It doesn't have that rubber band stretchability that glow line does.
Iduno,no more than it costs,I think I might replace the both,line and tank. Since a stopper costs almost as much as a tank.

I found an unused black stopper from another kit and used it just in case. I also used the clear glow fuel tubing instead of that yellow.
