Thanks for that. I'll print out the manual, luckily I bought new cartridges.
Yes I thought they were out on the red one too. When I first ordered the plane they told me via e-mail I can choose from only three colors, yellow, green and white. After all the drama with overcharged PP account they canceled my 1st order. When I reordered the plane I chose the color red again. This time the order went through without any issues.

This is not a complicated plane. What do you need the instructions for? I built mine without ever looking at the instructions. Ever build from plans? They rarely come with instructions!

Yeah, I've built a few and most all come with instructions. There's absolutely nothing wrong with instructions. If there's a preferred way to assemble something, it's ludicrous to do it twice.

Only two things.
What is the size of the extensions of the servos?
To take control of flap/spoiler should I use Y cable or two extensions?

Hey sergio

if you have a programable radio the use two chanels otherwise you have to make a Y and control both servos with one chanel. And those are Flaperons no flap/spoilers

good luck with the build

That's right, flaperon.

I will use a Turnigy 9X, then buy two extensions is better.

What is the length of them?

Hi Miles Away!

Thanks for the link!

Wow, I didn't know that Staufenbiel sells this plane. That's good news because I know Staufenbiel is renowned seller.
Here is a nice video from Airmix:

Thanks for that Miles away. They have suggested control throws which is helpful as a starting point. Unfortunately, my German language skills are very poor but one can struggle through with a translator.

Hi Guys

I'd like to share with you my impression of this very nice glider that ware bought in Christmas sale at very low price.

This glider is remarkably worth it's price.

I find it very easy to handle and it behave almost like a big F3J al regarding thermal

I am very happy with it.
