Dear Chris,

Please refer to the page 4 of this thread where has been posted some updated installation of retract landing gear information photoes. It can assist you to built up the plane. Please be reminded to use four long screws up through to the battery sitting hardwood to make sure the nose gear tightly. Meanwhile, the EDF set installation is needed to cut out some foam just enough let the motor cable able pass through behind the EDF. Then you must use some strong double foam tape to fix the EDF set and make sure the alignment is corrected then screw up the EDF set cover. Hope the above information is clear to you. If you still have question, please feel free to contact me.

Thanks for your purchasing our products and hope you enjoy the flight.

Best regards,
Tim

The testing flight was powered by 3S in the video. Since the EDF set setting issue which is not recommended to use 4S. A new setting for 4S will be taken the testing within this week then post for sharing with all of you asap.
Thanks.

All built using Lander alloy 3s fan, pretty impressed to be honest, like the "modular" build for each section then just glue it together. Usual ARTF niggles, but it took all of a day and a half to do. Thrust seems pretty impressive for 3s, 4s version should go really well, using a 3700mAh 22c pack, which balances it nicely with that alloy fan out back. Havn't bothered with flaps....I doubt there will be much point, feels nicely balanced and with that big straight wing, and huge tail......can't see lift being an issue....now just need this wind and rain to go...and I'll let you know how the maiden goes.

Just used the dummy oleo leg covers as advised to beef the leg's up [you have to cut away the seating of the retract], other than that....flying off tarmac.....more concerned about it locking down than the wire bending!

We are close to wrapping up the details with RC Lander on the two Panther schemes and the Rafale M so we can get the web site updated and begin the feeding frenzy.

All the airframes will be available with no electronics allowing people to add there own flavors of equipment. in addition options up to Receiver Ready and RTF will be available for everyone to have some fun.
